As more and more teachers get iPads in their classrooms for their students to use, the need for accountability gets greater and greater. These activities are for teachers who might have one iPad in their room to teachers who are 1:1. These NO PREP activities will have your students reading and ENJOYING their practice time! There are MORE than one activity per app so you can differentiate instruction among your students!
This product has activities using nine different FREE apps available in the iTunes store. The clock and camera app are already installed on your device. Educreations, Bla Bla Bla, TeleStory, ChatterPix, Speech Teleprompter, and Sock Puppets are free and will need to be downloaded to your iPads.
These activities can be used in centers or as stand alone activities if you have a 1:1 classroom. If they are used as centers, I have given you two choice boards that can be used to keep track of what center they have used.
Once a week, I demonstrate how to use different apps on my Periscope channel @kamibutterfield. If you miss them, you can find my recordings at www.katch.me/kamibutterfield. I try to demonstrate all the things I do in my classroom. These videos will help you use these activities in your room!
Some of the activities are harder than others. Some can be used with younger students and some can be used with your more advanced learners.
All activities will require a poem, passage, or book from your classroom. What makes this product unique, is the fact that you can use any type of text that you have in your classroom. It could be a textbook, literature book, chart paper, poster, etc.
Also included in this packet are EMOTION flashcards that can be printed, cut, and laminated to be used in a center. Some of the centers have blank boxes so these flashcards can be used. I have included a higher level set and a lower level set.
iPads help us to become more flexible in our learning. The students have ownership in their assignments. Thank you for purchasing this product. I hope your students love using these as much as mine do!
Just remember, your students know how to use these iPads better than most adults! As my kiddos say-WE’VE GOT APP-itude! Enjoy!
