*** Drawing Carl is no longer available in the US at this time so I have some new videos using the app Doodle Buddy for Drawing. The first 2 videos are new. iPad Lessons gives you everything you need to teach using free apps and your classroom ipads. (Perfect for classrooms with 1:1 iPads or small sets of iPads.)
Simple, Easy Lessons With Little Teacher preparation.
A Few of My Favorite Things..
is a 5 day mini unit (each lesson approx. 15-30) teaching students to use the app Book Creator. Students will make a simple digital book and then save it to iBooks. This is a great mini unit to start out the school year. It works great after doing Selfie Snaps
Students will use digitally draw pictures of their favorite things, erase the backgrounds of images and make them transparent, write sentences about their drawings, type and record the text into the Book Creator app and then publish their book to iBooks. After their book is in iBooks students will grade themselves using the rubric included. Students will then have a blast sharing their final books.
1. Download the free apps Doodle Buddy, Eraser, Book Creator and iBooks.
2. Copy the Favorite thing Brainstorming, sketch, and sentences sheets.
3. Play the video as your class follows along with their iPad.
1. Explicit written teaching instructions with full color photos.
2. A video for each lesson that walks students through everything
they need to do on the iPad.
3. A QR code of each video so that if students need to rewatch it on their own they can do that. (I-nigma app is recommended to scan the QR codes.)
4. Writing Station QR code cards.
(Once students make the first book there are plenty of other options that students could do. This could be a writing station in your classroom for weeks to come.)
