TIGER TECH~ MR. RICHARD ~ April 2018

 

You’ve probably noticed that we often refer to Google apps, Chromebooks, and Google Drive, and
with good reason. These tools have become a vital part of students’ days in grades 3-5 and more and
more in second grade as well. But what about the little guys?
Kindergarten and first grade students have daily access to iPads. These are primarily used in their
center work. You might find first grade students using the “Number Frames” app to show the many
ways to make 10, 20, or more!
In literacy, students read and listen to reading on iPads and
Chromebooks. Apps and online resources like TumbleBooks, Epic!,
and Kids A-Z allow students to read and listen to thousands of books
with just a few taps of a finger!
Many students are also learning to use the SeeSaw app to show, and
say, what they know! This app allows students to take pictures,
annotate and draw, and record audio and video to demonstrate their
learning. Students add their work to their online portfolio that is
shared with their teacher.
Every day we look for new ways for students to show what they know and share their learning with
their teachers, classmates, and the world!
