Do you ever wonder what list you're on? Naughty or nice? Wouldn't it be fun if we could tell Santa which list our students should be on? Oh, now that could be fun!!! If we had that kind of power, our students would behave ALL the time!
A generator is a web 2.0 tool that allows you to input data and then something is created for you. In the Santa Claus generator you'll choose who this is going to as far as a small child, an adult, etc. Then you'll have a few questions to answer, such as, "Is this person on the naughty list or nice list?" When you complete the questions, a video is completed with Santa talking to the recipient. This is very clever! Try it out on your spouse or a member of your family first to see how it works!
Santa will deliver a video message via email to someone close to you.
- This could be a fun way to introduce a new unit - turn it into a newspaper headline. Then put it on your title slide of your presentation (Keynote or PowerPoint) or in a flipchart.
Movie Clapper Board
- Use this as your opening clip when your class makes their own movies.
Generators are all over the Internet.
The Generator Blog
is a site that has pulled them altogether so we don't have to go searching. I'm NOT suggesting that your students use this site. There are some inappropriate graphics for younger students especially. But for teachers, use this blog to find some of the generators that might be useful in introducing units to students or for images for printed materials. They are linked to many different sites. You will find that some of the linked sites are fine for students.
Chocolate Candy Bar
- use this for your chocolate unit or for the literature book,
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Chocolate Candy Bar
- make candy bars with your students' names.
- Write a short message for your students.
Add a banner to your flipchart. Or add these to their nametags for their desks.
- didn't you just love snow globes when you were little? This could be fun to use with any of the Gary Paulsen books that take place in snowy areas. Upload a snowy scene from Minnesota or from Alaska - ah, the Iditarod.
-Add your own quotes or messages to students.
- add your text and select a shape. This is a little like Wordle.
