Ipad Learning Centers

Following on the heels of Mrs. Wideen and her awsome IPad centers, I created some Ipad centers for third grade. I am trying to move more away from paper and not stand at the copier making endless copies. I created these Ipad Stations to reflect third grade work and then have the students post in their Seesaw Learning Journal which is an online learning portfolio that I cannot say enough good things about.  Have a look at some of the work my class is doing and feel free to use these Ipad Center Ideas as well.

Here's some awesome appsmashing right here!! Using Number pieces and Popplet together.

Here is a link to some of the Ipad Stations I created. Feel free to use:

   Popplets are an all time favorite and very easy for children to manipulate. This is way more fun than drawing all those boxes on paper and then realizing your boxes are not big enough.   Popplet Lite is the free version of the app and the only difficult thing with the free version is the student must finish their Popplet before logging out or their work is not saved. Here are a few of our popplets:


It has been sooo long since I have shared anything on this blog.  I moved back to Atlanta, Georgia after living in France for 7 years and it has been quite an adjustment.  I settled into a third grade classroom in a lovely international community setting.

It is almost the end of the year, but I wanted to share some of the things I have been doing with my class this year.  I have introduced them to so much different technology. One idea my class uses and I I use as an assessment is InstaCollage.  Here I have the children create a collage based on whatever topic we may be working on. I add parameters such as minimum of 5 photo frames, must include text boxes with explanations and a title and author.

Here are a couple of images from some of my students.
