Chatter Pix App Task Challenge
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.

This site is most often thought of as a way to learn how to spell words, but there are lots of games that help kids connect to their meanings as well. It is free (if you can deal with adds on the page), and I would be happy to help you set up an account and learn how to navigate within the site.
