Bump is a great lesson starter to get the students moving. It also helps make your lesson fun, increases blood flow to the brain and improves cognitive capabilities. You can also use it to break up the lesson if it's been particularly teacher driven or if it seems like the whole class is having a frustrating time with content work. The kids absolutely love this activity and they will be asking to play bump all the time! Give it a shot!
Tutorial # 3
Be cool and play Maths in the Mud! This is a modification of Stuck in the Mud, but way less dodgy because you don't have students crawling through other student's legs (woo hoo, no law suits here!)! It's a great way to revise content from a previous lesson while getting students to move. Doing activities like this at the start of the lesson also gives students who are very active, a chance to get rid of some of their energy ... making this a proactive behavior management tool! Look at you go!

Turning Point is an Audience Response computer program that is built for Microsoft XP. In this video, we will learn how to Reset slides and display the participant grid. This is important when you are in the program and have already viewed a couple of the slides but want to run the slideshow again. If you don't reset the slides, they stop being interactive and the keypads will not work. This means you will soon have a riot on your hands in the classroom!
