Mobile Apps for Literacy in Gr 1
by Lisa Dempsey
Using this app in the classroom allows students to create a story, act out a math problem or make a presentation for their peers. This app allows the students to work on their project any where and edit as they need too.
I would use this app in my classroom for daily writing. To involve the students I would have the app on the smartboard and have a name selector choose who gets to shake the jar. Once the topic is picked, there would a group discussion on what we could right about. Then I would the students time to write in the journal.
Having scribblepress in the classroom, will allow my students to use their imagination and create their own stories. Also, having class created books engages the students with what their peers have created and giving them a sense of ownership.
