ELL Parent/Teacher Conferences

I am available to attend conferences as needed. Please just let me know if you would like to me to support you by attending a conference.


I will be including ideas focused on one or more of the following areas: How to use the iPad to support teaching/learning Ideas and strategies to support ELLs Differentiating for higher learners/GT Implementation of the 5 non-negotiables

Chatter Pix App Task Challenge

Each week I will be highlighting an app that I would like for you to try out in order to familiarize yourself with it so that you can more effectively integrate it into your instruction. The first person to show me the completed task will get a (small) prize from me.

Chatter Pix is this week's app task. This is another really versatile app that can be used across content areas. It gives a voice to any photo. Students simply take any photo, make a mouth on it and record their voice. This is a really great way to get your ELLs (and all kids) talking about content! This app task link gives some other ideas for uses in the classroom.
