Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa

If you are teaching students about these three winter holidays, Scholastic has an excellent interactive "scrapbook" for each. Students can click the headphones icon and the text will be read to them. It can be used whole group on the Smartboard, or older students can explore the site independently.

iPad Tip of the Week

Students can access a website just by clicking an "app" on the iPad. They won't have to log in or type in a web address!

The teacher preps the iPads before the lesson by opening the website using the Safari app. Then, they click on the box with the up arrow, next to the web address bar, to select "Add to Homescreen." The website then becomes an "app" on the iPad.

I am happy to help set this up for your class, if needed!
