Thanks to blogger Monica Burns for contributing to this info.

Modern Chalkboard is a great resource for teachers looking for SMART Board Notebook lessons. With content for Kindergarten through fifth grade Modern Chalkboard has math lessons on a range of topics. Teachers can find lessons on topics like area, perimeter, addition, multiplication, fractions, and more. In addition to math lessons, Modern Chalkboard also gives teachers access to science content. There are lessons on the solar system and human body as well as lessons on plant and animal cells.

Modern Chalkboard works on SMART Boards and teachers need to have the Notebook software installed on their computer in order to access and use the files. Making the most of technology includes finding the best resources for your students to connect learning goals to engaging activities. Modern Chalkboard is a great place to search for interactive content to use in the classroom.

Unfortunately, it is not free but with all the great ready-made template to meet the Common Core Standards. This might be well worth to check this out. It costs $30 a year for one person or $500 for school site membership for a complete access to all original interactive SMART Board notebook lesson files.
