Crocodile Teeth, PDF Printable

I love the crocodile feeding prop that many online teachers use, but have a set rule about spending money on props. I just can’t buy anything else. I’ve got a very young, ESL student who needs sound effects, play, and fun to keep his attention. I created this simple printable of a crocodile and will use a laminated page, and dry erase markers to play with my student. Enjoy this printable.

Assembly Directions: Print and Laminate this page. Use a dry erase marker to write in teeth. Have fun!

I put the laminated page on a clipboard to hold to camera.

I like lots of chomping and teeth gnashing sound effects with this one.

Digital Tools (ManyCam)

I use ManyCam for digital tools and rewards in my online classroom. I will take the image of the bee hive and make it a background in my ManyCam as a preset. I will use bees in ManyCam’s database of thousands of effects. Hide these away and add them to the hive as I teach as a reward. Watch this video Tutorial.

Lantern Festival, Animal Riddles Printable FREEbie

Celebrate in class this week with a fun printable Animal Riddle Printable.

On the Lantern Festival, 2/26, 2021 students will make a lantern and write riddles and ask friends to solve them. Bring this fun tradition to your online classroom with this cute OX animal riddle.

Assembly Directions:

Print two pages. I like this printed on cardstock since it is seasonal. Cut out the scrolls. Use tape putty behind to attach to lantern in the center of the background page with ox. Ask student to solve the riddle. When the student answers, give a star.

I support my lower level students with sound effects to guess the animals and will read for them if their English is limited.

I will use this all through my classes until 3/1. It’s so fun to play a guessing riddle game. Have fun!

My Favorite Webcam

I use an external webcam that I would recommend. It is the brand Amcrest. It is a highly rated webcam from a company that makes security cameras. This has many ratings on Amazon.

Online teachers recommend Logitech brand cameras. These have recently been out of stock and increased in price due to the shortage. Logitech brand are good webcams, but I am enjoying this other brand and good price.

I use this webcam to green screen using ManyCam too! It picks up light and has a clear camera view.
