1st Graders Getting "Techie"
We're using technology in Mrs. C's First Grade classroom
iPads, Blogs, and PowerPoint, Oh My!
We've begun posting comments to our Classroom blog. Last week, students wrote their opinions about recess and included their reasons behind their choice. Each week, they will reply to a new prompt.
We're using our six iPads for a variety of purposes. So far, we've scanned QR codes to give our partners feedback during a geometry activity. We've begun using the Classroom Organizer app to check out books from our classroom library. Last week, we used the ShowMe app to record our thinking while making text-to-text connections from the book, The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat Bad Wolf. Soon, we will be recording student-created math word problems.
Using QR Codes to Give Feedback
Partners worked together to match shapes with the shape name, a real life example of the shape and the defining attributes.
Using the ShowMe App
We recorded our thinking of our text-to-text connections about The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat Bad Wolf.
App for Checking Out Books
We've begun checking out books from our classroom library weekly. Each week a new librarian assists students returning their old books and selecting new ones for the week.
