Today is National Chocolate Day! This could be the ClickSchooling Team’s favorite day of the year (ha, ha, ha)! While there are many chocolate related holidays throughout the year, National Chocolate Day is a day to celebrate all things chocolate.  

As one of America’s favorite flavors, chocolate is well deserving of its own day of honor and celebration. We thought you might enjoy some chocolate-themed activities to celebrate this tasty day.

The Teachers Corner site is loaded with Chocolate activities! Just to name a few:  

  • Chocolate Touch (Grades 4-5) – Read the book and participate in writing activities using Hershey kisses.
  • Math Activities (Grades 1-6) – using the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as the subject.
  • Look through this site further to find many other Chocolate Day activities using math and science

Here are a few more sites to check out:

Math Snacks

(mathsnacks.com/)

Age Range: 9-13 (Grades 4-8, with parental supervision)

 

New Mexico State University Learning Games Lab created this site, which aims to provide “smart educational animations, games, and interactive tools that help mid-school learners better understand math concepts.”

The site’s collection of “snacks” are highly entertaining educational movies, games, and apps that focus on specific mathematical concepts, each requiring only a small amount of time. Some of the videos and games you’ll find include: 

  • Watch the fabled Atlantis sink, thanks to a Dodgeball coach who lacks a clear understanding of ratios.
  • Identify numbers that sum to ten, and decimals that sum to 1 – while driving a school bus full of monsters and deforming the neighborhood (this one you’ve got to see to believe).
  • Watch a supervillain and superhero match wits, scaling things up and down by the same factor.

There are many more as well. Look under the “Teaching With” link to find guides for student and teacher, as well as transcripts of the video clips, and more, to help solidify the concepts.

A handy reminder from the teachers’ page: “Math Snacks isn’t a curriculum, but a series of activities you can use with the curriculum you are already using in grades 4-8.” Since they’re snacks, you’ll be glad to hear that they’re portable; if you have a mobile device, you can learn something new on the go!

Parts of Speech Tutorial

(www.sheppardsoftware.com/grammar/grammar_tutorial.htm)

Age Range: 7-10 (Grades 2-6, with parental supervision)

 

This fun “Parts of Speech Tutorial” is comprised of a series of animated games that help kids identify and use nouns, adjectives, verbs, commas, and capitals. It’s part of the massive, ad-supported Sheppard Software website that offers hundreds of free learning games for children in language arts, math, science, history and more.

When you get to the website you’ll see a picture of a stage. Click on the word “Play” on the stage curtain to create a character using nouns, adjectives, and verbs. If you’re uncertain of those parts of speech, then look at the menu on the left side of the page to find educational games that include:

  • Noun Explorer – Learn the definition of a noun and use it to feed fish in the animated game.
  • Adjective Adventure – Select fly adjectives and use them to feed the spiders.
  • Verbs in Space – Use verbs to hammer robot aliens in space.
  • Magical Capital – Help a fairy capitalize words in sentences.
  • Comma Chameleon – Select punctuation marks and help the chameleon place them in a sentence correctly.

Once you play those games, go back to the main page to build your character for the stage. This is an engaging way to help kids learn and practice parts of speech.
 
When you’ re finished, be sure to click on the words “Sheppard Software” at the top of the screen to explore all of the learning games offered at this site. You’ll want to bookmark it to return often.
