Computer Center Fun and a giveaway

I don't know about you but I'm always trying to find good websites for my kids to use during their turn at the computer center. My fallback always seems to be Starfall and that gets old after a while. Well,  a while back my friend Mary from Sharing Kindergarten posted an amazing product to use during center time for the Computer. She started with some themes and holidays and I had to buy them right away. Then she posted the math pack and I was even more in love. Better yet my kids were in love. They were engaged and had choice and I had no headaches.
This is how I have it set up in my room: I have 2 computers that students work on during center time and then I allow 2 students to work on the promethean board. The students on the computer are either working on a theme or holiday computer center sheet. (Holiday Computer Sheets and Theme Computer Sheets). It is nice because I can get some science and social studies in during center time and it takes very little work on my part. I downloaded the folder onto my desktop so I can pick the sheet I want the kids to go to when it is center time. Here are a couple of pictures from my kids working on the Easter theme one this week.


I should have probably cropped some of that out of my picture. Like my super messy desk.
My 2 students that are on the promethean board do an activity from the Computer Sheets Math Pack. I love this because I can choose different skills depending on the students that are working on the board. I can differentiate so easily.

These students were working on the addition page. Here's an example of what the pages look like:
The coolest part is Mary includes a video of how to use this product with each one. 
So if you are like me, you are ready to buy this product.  I have some good news,  you can win the Computer Sheets for Kindergarten Math below. 

You have the next 6 days to enter. If you are like me and you have to have all the packs, check out Sharing Kindergarten's Teachers Pay Teachers Store.
Mary is always posting great technology ideas and apps. Be sure to head over to her blog and check it her out.

  1. These look amazing. I do worry about our student computers blocking some of the links. They block some silly things. Have you ran into any trouble with that? Either way, I know this would make my computer station less of a headache. Fingers crossed I win:)

  2. Thanks for sharing. I am always looking for new sites for my students to use during computer/center time. I would love to have these to spice up and change up computer time. I find myself using the same websites over and over and my students have played every game. I hope I win.
