Today was the day, we took the Ipad into grade one and I used it once in the morning and ALL afternoon. The kids were over the top excited about it. One little boy did not even want to go home at 4:00! lol
So what did we do on the first day?
Well of course we set some criteria for how to use the Ipad......
and then I held on to it while intoducing the idea of alphabetical order. We used a fridge magnet app and the kids took turns putting the letters I put on the fridge in ABC order. Now I know the mimio would have been a better choice for this activity but we really wanted to get our hands on that Ipad!
And in the afternoon.... Mrs. Fisher came in and took kids two at a time to use AB Math Lite. The kids had to sequence numbers while racing against a clock. They LOVED the novelty of it! And guess what we found out it does alphabetical order racing against a clock.... that might be tomorrow's fun.
