iPad Friday

If I was a betting woman, I would bet that each student will go home today and tell you guys what we did in school...not the regular blow off of, "Nothing!" Because today we used the app for the ipad called Toontastic to begin writing animated stories on the iPad. Obviously, the students were quite excited and very engaged!!!

After reading, the children had to settle down for our math quiz. The quizzes have been scored and returned to students. Please look for them in your child's binder this evening.

Next, the students visited the media center and enjoyed lunch and indoor recess.

After recess we had a visitor from the Montgomery Coalition for the Homeless speak to the class about being homeless in preparation for our Homeless Walk next week. We will end the day by visiting the computer lab to continue publishing our writing pieces.

BTW...the picture above was not the one I was hoping to post...but I will make an attempt to catch our students while they are engaged in learning and post those pictures here for you to enjoy. This picture was while the students were sharing the stories they created, this morning, using the iPads. I had hoped to post a picture that showed them in small groups, huddled around the iPads with rear-ends in the air...totally engrossed....but I accidentally deleted it! UGH!
