This is part of a series of posts about using technology in your classroom to support all learners. While it will mainly focus on iPads since that's the technology we have at our school, many of these apps are also available for Android and some even have computer versions. See the first post here.
Summer is here (ok, so summer has been here for awhile but, hey, we all needed some downtime, am I right?). Along with relaxing and playing with my kiddos, this summer I wanted to take some time to get some more products up on Teachers Pay Teachers (honestly, how do people find time to do this during the school year?!). And since I have finally been getting to that, I wanted to share a freebie with you.
This is a little handout I created for our school's Stop the Summer Slide parent night that we hosted at the very end of the school year. It was a great night and I really think that the parents that came went away armed with some great activities to do with their kids over the summer. I created handouts for reading, writing, alphabet, phonological awareness skills and, of course, technology. These are some of my favourite educational apps and websites - easy to use, high in learning value and engaging for kids. If you've been following this series, you've seen a few of them in detail already.
And for all you French Immersion teachers out there, I created a version with French apps & websites as well. Looks exactly the same, with an extra little box. Click here to be linked to that one!
Enjoy and let me know any apps that you would add. I'm always looking for great suggestions!
