First graders in Mrs. Thomas' class (PKVES) learned to use a new app called Font Candy to create adjective word collages on pre-selected pictures of nouns. Students had been learning to add adjectives and details to their writing. They selected three noun pictures and created adjective webs to plan for their project. The students selected their favorite one, created a word collage and then shared a sentence about their noun. All of the collages and narrations were put together into Book Creator, a class favorite. Check it out!
Third grade students in Mrs. Siler's class (JCMES) used iMovie on the iPads to create an end of unit project on the water cycle. Using a template, each student explained parts of the water cycle with pictures, a song, and narrations. Not only did their first experience with iMovie create digital projects full of science content, but an enthusiasm for using iMovie. When finishing an assignment later in the week, students asked to use iMovie to create fraction movies to share!
First graders in Mrs. Eye's class (JWES) added two new apps to their app library. As an end of unit project, each student created a PicCollage of their favorite planet and included it as a background in Tellagami. Check out the video below for an out of this world app smash!
