Over Christmas break we received 2 new iPads for classroom use. The purchase of these were made possible by a grant written for Place-Based Learning and our Thompson’s Harbor project. These valuable pieces of technology will be used in various ways throughout the day for example to supplement a math concept, listening to reading during Daily 5 time, spelling, reading fluency, reading comprehension, to use our classroom website, to take photos and video, etc. We will also be using these iPads when we go on our trips to Thompson’s Harbor. Until now, we have borrowed iPads to take with us on our trips, now we have our own! Students received training on these this week and they will be open for use next week! Ask your child how they use the iPads in our classroom!
