So, what are all my kids interested in right now? Angry Birds!! They love this game. Every time I get out my iPad they ask me to play it. I guess I can't blame them...it is a really fun game. I knew I needed to find a way to incorporate Angry Birds into my classroom therapy.
This week, several of my grade levels are working on finding the main idea of a passage. So, I created a lesson using Angry Birds to co-teach the concept of main idea with the classroom teacher. Check it out. :)
The first slide is their learning target or "I can" statement. This helps the kids to know what they will be able to do once we are finished.
This lesson has fun definitions, tips, and 5 examples that have to do with angry birds. The examples start out easy and get more complex.
You can save this lesson in iBooks and view it as an ebook or display it on your regular computer or projector. This definitely makes it easy for me to modify for the classroom.
I also made a freebie game to go along with the lesson. This game uses 18 angry bird story cards. The kids have to try and come up with their own main idea of the passages.
Three lose a turn cards and three extra turn
Unfortunately, I decided to remove access to this lesson and game because of copyright. I just didn't want to get in trouble! Lol. If you have any questions you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. :)
