LearnZillion...Have you heard of it?

I am updating this post and linking up with Ideas by Jivey's Workshop Wednesday.  My go to site for math is Learn Zillion.  I teach an Exceptional Children's inclusion class and show my students the video lessons first then take each slide one at a time.  This site has really helped with teaching them the new concepts of Common Core.


Some of you may already know about Learnzillion.com, I was just introduced to it this year by one of my teammates.  I must say I {Heart} this site! It is a great resource for power point lessons that are Common Core aligned and FREE!

At my school we all share planning responsibilities.  Two teachers plan Reading for the year, a different teacher plans Writing, Science, & S.S., while another teacher and I plan Math.  My teammate and I alternate skills in which we plan to give ourselves a break from planning.  We also have cluster classes, two low, two highs, and one average (we did have two average but had to disperse the class).  As grade level chair I wanted a low and high cluster teacher planning Reading and Math to ensure all levels were being met.  The great thing about Learnzillion is once you have downloaded the PP you can add slides to it.  This is where we adjust the lesson to fit our students needs.

I just completed a weeks worth of lesson plans in 90 minutes!  Can you believe that!  This includes creating homework sheets to go along with the lessons.

I have also used there ELA lessons with my class to supplement the plans my teammates have created.  I have the EC cluster and my students need more direct instruction when learning or reviewing skills.  LearnZillion lessons can be viewed as a video or PP presentation.  Often I will include the link to the lesson video in a SmartBoard lesson to trick my students into watching a "movie".

My only complaint with LearnZillion is they don't have lessons for all CC standards yet, at least for fourth grade.  I have used other grade level lessons to teach skills.  I hope you find this site as useful as I do!

From the homepage (once you have created a Login) you can see there are tons of useful tools.  I haven't tried them out yet.  If you have please share your experience :)

  1. Hi,
    I learned about your blog on Megan's Super-Power blog, and I love, or should I say {HEART} it! I'm actually scheduled to participate in a webinar on LearnSillion in about ten minutes. Did you know they are looking for 200 teachers to participate in a "Dream Team"? I hope I've pasted you the link right here: https://exchange.pickens.k12.sc.us/owa/redir.aspx?C=PY-H3IFLbEGwUiJw358dlpwYg_3RwM8IwKx6S5YuEC-M8MsoQZatmQMoJwRvUOmVT7Q6Sk9K9nI.&URL=http%3a%2f%2fwww.edmodo.com.

  3. Wow, I have not heard of Learnzillion before but it sounds fantastic and I'm really excited to go and check it out! The planning schedule your team follows sounds really nice- no sense in EVERYONE reinventing the wheel each week. Do your kids move around to different teachers for different subjects or do you share your plans?
