Create an Alphabet Book on ReadWriteThink

This week Larry Ferlazzo shared the exciting news that ReadWriteThink relaunched all of their popular interactive student writing templates. The templates now work without Flash. One of my favorite templates that has been relaunched by RWT is the Alphabet Organizer template. 

Alphabet Organizer is a great little tool from Read Write Think that students can use to create alphabet charts and books. The idea behind Alphabet Organizer is to help students make visual connections between letters of the alphabet and the first letter of common words. In this short video I demonstrate how to use this tool.

ReadWriteThink Interactives Now Work Without Flash!

For many years ReadWriteThink offered a great collection of interactive templates for students to use to create all kinds of things including poems, story plots, timelines, compare & contrast maps, and much more. Unfortunately, the deprecation of Flash caused nearly all of the ReadWriteThink templates to stop working. That is until now!

Thanks to Larry Ferlazzo's weekly Ed Tech Digest post, this morning I learned that ReadWriteThink has released updated versions of their popular student interactives. The updated versions retain all of the great aspects of the originals, but now they work without Flash. You can find all of them right here

In this video I provide a brief overview of the updated ReadWriteThink student interactives collection. The video includes a demonstration of one of my favorite templates, the Trading Card Creator.


Applications for Education
Some of the ways that the ReadWriteThink Trading Card Creator could be used by students is to create a set of trading cards about characters in a novel, to create a set of cards about people of historical significance, or to create cards about places that they're studying in their geography lessons.
