Two Montessori kindergarten students participated in a variety of literacy based technology enrichment activities. We wrote stories in Little Bird Tales, completed comprehension activities using Tumblebooks and read story apps.
Our third project was offered to four groups of first grade students starting in April, which is National Poetry Month. We used computers, a scanner and ipad to create shape poems, haiku, acrostic poems and I Spy poems.
