  • VOKI:  Voki  is  a  great  way  to  have  students  share  their   knowledge  of  a  topic  in  60  seconds  or  less.  Makes   students  organize  their  thoughts  to  focus  on  key  details.   www.voki.com     Lesson  Examples:     Lesson  Title:  Composers   Subject:  Music   Grade:  5th  Grade   Author:  Stephanie  Bushman   Brief  Description:  Fifth  graders  begin  a  journey  into   classical  music  in  this  lesson  plan.  Each  student  is  assigned   a  classical  composer  to  research.  Students  will  then  create   PowerPoint  presentations  answering  questions  about   their  composer  and  presenting  them  to  the  class.  Then,   students  turn  to  Voki  to  share  an  interesting  fact  about   their  composer.     Lesson  Title:  Homonyms   Subject:  ESL/  ELL...   Grade:  5th  Grade   Author:  Ashley  Chaney  Ortiz   Brief  Description:  Students  will  discover  the  subtleties  of   the  English  language  by  familiarizing  themselves  with  the   5  categories  of  homonyms.  Utilizing  various  homonym   jokes,  Voki  avatars,  and  formal  instruction,  students  will   become  more  attuned  to  the  details  of  English  and   hopefully  never  write  'to'  in  place  of  'too'!     Lesson  Title:  Prompt  and  Response   Subject:  Writing   Grade:  5th  Grade   Author:  Ashley  Chaney  Ortiz   Brief  Description:  The  teacher  writes  one  prompt  a  week   as  part  of  an  ongoing  lesson  and  students  have  to  respond   thoughtfully  to  the  prompt  using  Voki.    
  •   Lesson  Title:  The  Meaning  of  a  Poem   Subject:  Reading   Grade:  5th  Grade   Author:  Ashley  Chaney  Ortiz   Brief  Description:  The  teacher  assigns  each  student  a   short  poem  that  is  relevant  to  their  personality  and   interests.  Students  then  give  a  brief  presentation  on  Voki   Classroom  about  what  the  poem  means  to  them  as  a   supplement  to  a  short  essay.     Lesson  Title:  What  is  your  New  Year's  Resolution?   Subject:  Public  Speaking...   Grade:  5th  Grade   Author:  Ashley  Chaney  Ortiz   Brief  Description:  A  new  year  can  bring  a  fresh  start  to   your  class.  With  this  New  Year's  lesson  plan,  you  and  your   students  can  reflect  on  the  last  year  in  class  and  how  this   year  can  be  better.  Students  will  learn  about  resolutions   and  be  introspective  in  order  to  bring  out  the  best  from   within.     Lesson  Title:  Who  was  Christopher  Columbus?   Subject:  Social  Studies...   Grade:  5th  Grade   Author:  Ashley  Chaney  Ortiz   Brief  Description:  Early  European  explorers  and  the  "founders"  of  the   Americas  are  often  surrounded  by  myth  rather  than  fact,  which  has  made   American  history  an  eclectic  mix  of  fantasy  and  truth  that  can  often  prove   confusing  for  students.  Although  we  celebrate  Columbus  Day  in  the  U.S.,   the  reasons  for  celebration  are  obscure  yet  remain  unquestioned  by   majority  of  elementary  social  studies  and  history  classes.  This  lesson  plan  is   based  on  rediscovering  the  early  history  of  the  Americas  and  specifically   focused  on  rethinking  Christopher  Columbus  and  his  exploration  of  the   "Indies."
