So today we took spelling to a whole new level (thanks Mrs. Malchow again for another great idea!) We each got a turn to spell 3 words aloud speaking into the free Ipad app - songify. The app then took our words and turned them into a song. The kids enjoyed hearing their own voices back, they had a little laugh at the robotic sounding one and were excited for their independent turn.
I had a special guest helper today (my son) who was the leader who sat with each student to teach them how to use the app. A few students were very excited to go home and download it onto their Ipods!!! Now there is a sneaky way to spell!
