Mice, mice, and more mice!!!

The other day my uncle posted a link on my Facebook page for a cool new education tool. If you have Power Point, you can use this tool. Microsoft has a free download called Mouse Mischief.

It allows every student to have a mouse and use them simultaneously on a Power Point presentation. You can click here to be able to see this in action. I love this idea and will definitely be passing it along to my technology people at school to see if we can get the equipment together. My school has clickers (the individual remotes for each student) but there are only a couple of sets available. Of course, now that I think about it I'm not sure what the difference in technology use-ability is between Third graders and Kindergartners. Probably a big difference though! If you are looking for a great resource to use with either a mouse, your laptop, or clickers, check out my Teachers Pay Teachers account. I have an awesome Power Point for math word problems. I've used it for several years to review word problems of different operations as well as multiple step problems. Click below to check it out :)

Have a blessed day,
