Reading Response Activities: I use the iPad as a way for students to respond to their reading as well as a way to practice reading strategies we have learned. In the pics below, my little friends are working in ShowMe on drawing their visualizations while I read them a story.
Here my little friends are drawing answers to their “questions” we came up with while reading our stories. These were done in another free app, Screenchomp.
My little friends are completing their graphic organizer on the iPads showing the characters and setting of the story. They are also working on their Vocabulary Superheroes on the iPads. We use both ShowMe and ScreenChomp daily for reading response activities because they can record their voices explaining what they are creating.
QR codes- Here my little friends are working on creating CVC words and identifying the middle vowel sound with QR codes!
Writing: We use the Popplet app regularly for brainstorming our ideas before writing in our journals. My little friends draw pictures, label the pictures or write sentences in this app– check out this post for more specifics!
Math: My first graders love using their ipads for QR Codes, Application and we also did some centers using the camera feature on the iPad.
Here one of my little friends wrote, in a dry-erase marker, his answer on our laminated task card then will scan to check to check and see if he is correct.
