Reminders and other activities in the classroom
We have been using "Chatterpix" in the classroom during our writing activities. Chatterpix is a program where you take a picture of the student's work, draw a mouth on it, and then the student can speak, which brings their writing to life. The students have been loving them. I choose four students per writing assignment and send a personal email to their parents. Every child will have the opportunity to experience this fun and exciting technology. If I can figure out how to attach them to my Smore, I will be sure to do that.
