  This is my first year teaching and the SMARTBOARD is the BEST!!  Imagine a
white board, on the wall or on legs. A projector shows a picture on the board
and when you TOUCH the picture, you can manipulate it.  It's like your hand is
the mouse, the pen, everything!  You can make your own lessons or you can
download them from other sources.  You can use SMARTBOARD lessons , or
PowerPoint lessons or even United Streaming.  Fractions and fraction pies all
connected, living literature, social studies - like heierarchy pyramids - all
  It is amazing!
