THE biggest question from these kindergarteners on the first day of school was...when are we getting our iPads?
On Tuesday (the second day of school) scholars got their iPads. They quickly learned how to turn the iPad on and off, located the home button, practiced swiping and how to flexibly use the Otter Box case. I showed them a few things about the app 'Doodle Buddy' and they were off.
We've been talking about attributes this week so today scholars used the stamp feature on Doodle Buddy to group items by their attributes. It was a great formative assessment piece for me as I watched scholars group items by: living and non-living, different types of animals, different types of animal movements, holidays, shapes, colors and more!
