With a very new, very expensive Smartboard in the middle of my teaching space, I feel very obligated to use it and make sure that other people see me use it. I admit that I haven't mastered the art of creation, but I long ago mastered the art of downloading and linking. Here are a few games I will be using with grades three through six to introduce, review and practice shelf order and call number.
