Welcome to Week 3 of our Tune into Technology linky! This week we are sharing how we use iPads in our classrooms. You can link up your ideas at the end of this post or over at Learning to the Core—it all goes to the same place.:)
The app we use the most in my classroom is i-nigma, which is a FREE QR code reader. I will go into more detail about QR codes in August since it's one of our weekly themes.
Sushi Monster is a new(ish) FREE app by Scholastic for practicing addition and multiplication. You can watch a quick video below to see how it works.
Stack the States is one that the kiddos really enjoy, and it gives them some much-needed geography practice. It currently costs $0.99.
Bluster is a great app for various literacy skills—rhyming words, prefixes, suffixes, synonyms, homophones, adjectives, etc. It can be played individually or against a partner, and it’s FREE.
Show Me is an extremely user-friendly app that lets you record whiteboard-style tutorials. It’s easy for the kids to use as well to explain their work. I’m sure I’ll get a lot more use of it this year as I attempt to flip my classroom in math.
