We have been having some Halloween fun using a new app for us called Popplet!. The children have been working in partners to create an idea web about Halloween.
I created a folder of Halloween clipart for the students to choose from on my iPad. Then they created their Popplet by importing the images from the camera roll into their popplets and adding text to the pooplet using the words on the word walls and pocket charts in the classroom.
The children are making them in partners and we will post more of their efforts as soon as they are ready! I love how fearless they are when it comes to technology!
We have also been having more fun with the CoLAR app and the pumpkin trigger picture.
I incorporated the image into a writing exercise. We brainstormed some ideas about the dancing pumpkins and the children chose their favorites to add to the story prompt.
After the students wrote down their ideas and colored the pictures we used the iPads to activiate the trigger picture. Lots of giggles and fun!
