PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Koosh Ball Game SMARTBoard

This is a Koosh Ball Game for students that do not have good aim when throwing a koosh ball at the SMARTBoard. Every inch of the SMARTBoard is covered with a group of snowflakes linked to a question page. There are 20 template question pages linked to the home page. No more saying, "Give it one more try too hit the snowflakes.

This Koosh Ball Game can be used to teach any subject you wish math, reading, science, etc. The teacher just needs to double click the writing in the square and type in a question. I would then lock the question so it cannot be changed or moved by the student.

First the student will throw a koosh ball at the SMARTBoard. Next he will answer the question. Then he will touch the snowman that is linked back to the home page. Finally he will let the next student take their turn.

My First Graders adore any Koosh Ball Game we play using the SMARTBoard.

Love the idea, but couldn't get a koosh ball or bean bag to work on my Smartboard.Suggestions?
On  February 27, 2013Christi Squires answered:
Sorry to hear you are having trouble with the game. You need to use the soft Koosh balls. The kind that when you squeeze them they look like a balloon. If you use a harder Koosh ball or beanbag it is like hitting the SMARTBOARD and it will not respond. I generally go d my Koosh balls at Target in their $1 section or in their birthday party section of the store.

If you email me at cssmartietech@gmail.com I will be happy to send you a picture of all my Koosh balls that I know work.

Used this yesterday. I was confused and so were the students about where to hit the smartboard since there seems to be snowflakes everywhere. I got this one because I thought it fit Jan better than some of the other ones. I think the fall and spring games I bought I may like better since it seems more clear about where you need to hit the screen. Some of my students kept getting the same questions over and over. I am giving the highest rating because my students were still engaged in the review and also because maybe it was just my smartboard having trouble... I put No opinion on accuracy because it seemed like there was no clear place to hit the screen to get a new question. We ended up just flipping through the slides to make sure we answered all the questions. The font for the questions should be smaller. As most questions are longer than one word. I had to manually change that as well.
On  January 19, 2013Christi Squires answered:
Meagan,

Thanks for the feedback. I created this lesson because I have been told by other buyers they like a picture scene better than targets to aim for.

Like your students mine also seem to aim for the middle of the screen and hit the same spot until I encourage them to try to hit different parts of the screen.

I tend to use the lesson more to review math skills so that is why I used such a large font. However it is fairly easy to adjust the size by putting clicking on the text, then putting on the circle at the bottom right of the text box and dragging it in until it is the size you would like. Then all you have to do is highlight my text and type in your own.

If you need any further directions or help you may email me at cssmartietech@gmail.com

Once again thank for the feedback and I hope you will give the lesson another try.

Hi Christi,
Quick question: I purchased your Let It Snow etc. koosh ball game for my SMARTboard last January. I forgot about it until this summer when I was looking through my TPT "stuff". I downloaded it, but when I open it up all I get is a word precessed page telling me how to play the game. There are no links that I can see to actually open the game part of it. Is that because I am doing this from home on my macbook? Is there something else I need to do to see the game itself? Thanks for any help you can give me. Beth
