Downloadable Resources

I often create graphics and resources and share them freely. This page will serve as a one-stop location for me to post links for others to download and use these resources. Check back here regularly to see what’s new.

Choice Boards

Using techniques covered in this VERY popular blog post on creating virtual classrooms, my choice boards are simple, and have been well received by students. Created in Canva, each board embeds links to 16 themed resources that can be used in a variety of ways. They are a great asynchronous opportunity, or can be used over time to boost knowledge of a particular topic. They would make great sub plan lessons too!

Quite simply, students choose a resource that resonates with them and answer the three simple reflections at the end of the document. The questions that my students asked after the first use of the ‘Brain and Exercise’ board were so good I ended up Zooming an expert to get their response! The board below has links to magazine articles, New York Times articles, TED talks and podcast episodes – there’s something there for everyone!

Click on the image below to access the folder where I will drop each of my choice boards. They are interactive PDF’s, so make sure you share the PDF with your students and not a JPG image instead.

Halloween Poster

I first saw this poster in a school while presenting at the OAHPERD conference. I took this photo and couldn’t find the original anywhere online, so perhaps it was created by the teacher named in the poster. The version of the poster I am sharing has changed for 2020 based on the feedback from a disabled disability advocate in this tweet. Click on the image to download the poster – Happy Halloween!
