I saw this last spring and downloaded it to use myself, but was just reminded of it by @coolcatteacher…Triptico!
Triptico is a collection of 23 interactive resources designed for IWBs. Activities include Word Magnets, Class Timer, random students selectors, team point scoreboards, Find Ten, student groups, Text Spinner, Question Quiz, Match It, Class Vote and more!
The Word Magnets is similar to the Magnet Poetry; you enter a bunch of words (copy and paste a list) and moveable “magnets” are created. There are 42 different backgrounds associated with Word Magnets, so students can categorize, create Venn diagrams, ABC lists, bulls eyes, process charts and much more. If you forget a word or want to add more (a student’s suggestion!), you can quickly add and delete words. You can also change the background board color or the color of the magnets, meaning I can color code my parts of speech or herbivores, carnivores and omnivores!
The Find 10 let’s teachers enter a topic and create 15 facts, some related and other not, for students to identify. This would also work well for classifying items, synonyms, a Who am I and more!
There are other great interactive activities and useful, reusable classroom management tools. Enjoy!
