This week the pre-K students to used the Memory Match app during iPad time. You can see they are concentrating so intently that I could not even get most of them to look up and smile at the camera! This app is a fun way to build thinking skills as well as learn new vocabulary words.
Using a mouse is a challenging skill to learn! Because many families use tablets with young students these days, many students have never used a mouse before coming to the computer lab. We do a variety of “games” to practice using the mouse to improve their fine motor control and to learn to click between buttons on the screen. On Friday the first grade students played the “Can You Draw?” game. (We use KidPix software for many of lessons for early learners.)
Can you draw a red dog with a blue hat?
Can you draw a green cat with a purple umbrella?
Can you draw a yellow car with blue wheels?
These videos give you a quick look at the wonderful stories that the first graders recently finished writing and illustrating using Kidpix. I’m proud of how they can follow multiple directions on their own and their creative drawing and writing skills!
The preschoolers and the first-graders have enjoyed reading the playground book created by the second graders. Here are some comments that the first-graders had about the book.
Fifth-grade classes finished their Hyperstudio Tour of their Life project today. When students were done, they went around the room and left comments for other students about their projects. They left both complements and suggestions of things that could be improved. It was a great way to learn and grow from their peers.
The first-graders recently finished these snowman stories created in KidPix. Last week we recorded the audio portion of each story in the Book Creator. app. Our snowman book will be available soon for download and we are planning to publish it to iTunes.
