We have been having some fun with a cool augmented reality app called Quiver (used to be known as CoLAR). I downloaded the trigger image page which is a colouring page found on their website. I had the children colour the page and then used our smart board to share what happens when you hold an iPad with the app open over the trigger image of the pumpkins. The pumpkins get up and dance around! Too much fun!
You can find additional pictures on their website. You can download the trigger images and experiment! There are a variety of trigger images to choose from with ranging in subject area. Some of the images are free. Some of the images require you to download the images within the app for a small fee.
We hope you enjoyed the little booklet we made to help us practise our Halloween or Fall vocabulary using the words we are trying to practice! The children had fun making the funky covers!
We have also been practising our new sight vocabulary words using our word bank bags. The children cut out the words and then try to make up sentences using the words. You should have received a small ziplock bag with a Halloween or Fall sticker on it with a lot of small pieces of paper with words on them last week. I hope the children taught you how to play with them! I took a few pictures of some of the sentences the children have created using these words. The object of the exercise is to create as many sentences as you can! We have the children create sentences and then we go around the classroom and try to read each other’s sentences! Hopefully you have had some fun creating sentences at home. It is a great way to practise the Dolch words in context! Please take pictures of the sentences you create at home and with your permission I will post them on our blog! Just email the pictures to me!
Here are the first sentences emailed to me! Yeah!
