Text based evidence, finding the main idea, and vocabulary scoots with our iPads are a big hit each and every day. Easy to add a photo in app, pick a color and you are ready to roll. When they scoot, each desk has a task and an iPad. They love this.
Want a sneak peek into my classroom? Once or twice a month, I snapchat all day using videos and pics of what we are up to....These will be videos and pics that no one else can see except my SNAP Happy Friends!!!! We have APPitude!!!
I love everything about this app. Seeing my students live is just amazing. Being able to differentiate learning is incredible. Don't have enough books, no problem. Put them in ClassKick. You can add sound, text, and links. This internet based app is such a game changer. Need to know more, www.classkick.com. They have videos, sample assignments, and mentors like me that can lead you in the right direction. I promise, this app will not disappoint.
Need more ideas.....I have a product in my TPT store that has 150+ ideas to do in your ELA classroom using the DOODLE BUDDY app. bit.ly/1OHBWYU
Students can take a picture of their graphic organizer and upload into their Educreations and add photos and text to their project. They also record their voice and explain everything in this app.
This student is taking pics for her project and adding some filters like a pro. She is destined to be a future INSTAGRAM expert.
Students learn how to edit photos the first week of school. These photos will be used in their graphic organizer for retelling by the famous Jen Jones from Hello Literacy! This is one of my favorite lessons all year!
PIC COLLAGE....We have been using this app for years. I love the easy manipulation of the pics and text. The students can search for images or use their own. One of the new features allows them to add animated gifs. We use this app almost daily. The picture above was analyzing a poem that we were working on using photos that represented the text. Each student then uploaded their image to SeeSaw and explained it for their classmates and parents.
I will be pretty active on PERISCOPE this week! Be on the lookout for me! @kamibutterfield (Teaching with APPitude)
