Chisholm Third grade students are using the iPads in Many different ways
Students have used Pebble Go to research a famous black American and to research a president to compare to George Washington. Once they filled out their Venn Diagram, they made a trading card with their information using the Trading Card app.
For reading stations (centers), students have used the Epic app and News-O-Matic app. The News-O-Matic app "covers relevant news of the day in an engaging way, exploring its many facets through images, maps, videos, and games. Whether your interest is sports, science, world news, or wacky events, News-O-Matic delivers what’s making the news! It offers a window to the world and beyond helping readers become global citizens!"
For math fact practice, they have used the Slide apps. Math Slide apps are "multiplayer games that help students learn and recall number facts. Students learn by sliding tiles into the center to match an answer, equation or image."
Students have been creating "Wacky Web Tales", where students fill out a form with required parts of speech like the one pictured here.
Once they submit the form, the website will generate their "Wacky Web Tale."
Students also access many more engaging websites on their iPads that help them learn about things that are interesting to them. Their school has these websites listed on their school website.
