App Smash Challenge: Tellegami and Word Clouds
App smashing is the process of using more than one app to create a project or complete a task. This week's challenge involves using word clouds and describing or explaining it using Tellegami, that lets you create and share quick animated videos.
Please remember that these types of projects are entirely possible using only one iPad, and you all have access to 4 iPads that I store in my office in addition to yours. I would be delighted to come into your room and support you in implementing any of these iPad based projects!
In order to encourage more of you to explore the use of iPads with kids, I am offering a prize to everyone who completes the task this week (with a bigger prize for the first finisher).
Here is the link to the challenge.
PARCC Practice tests
Here is the link to the PARCC practice tests. You will want to familiarize yourself and your students with the format, test tools and types of questions they will encounter on the test.
Number Pieces is a free app that helps students develop a deeper understanding of place value while building their computation skills with multi-digit numbers. Students use the number pieces to represent multi-digit numbers, regroup, add, subtract, multiply, and divide. Virtual base ten blocks.
