Not today and I was ready for it not to work. Plan B was being formed as I gingerly opened the SMART notebook file. Projector on. SMART board cable plugged in.
I tentatively turned back to the laptop. So far, all looked good. But it has fooled me before. Next thing I know, the bright blue background of the Jeopardy game appeared. It worked! Ready for action.
For one hour, we reviewed fractions and probability to prepare for an upcoming math assessment. The students worked in partners, had rich discussions about math when they hit the $500 level questions, and were bummed when I had to shut it down.
Finger crossed for tomorrow's lesson!
