The students are so excited about using our iPads for learning. We talked about using them during our Reading and Math Workshops, and our Literacy Work Stations. I just downloaded some digital books from Scholastic's Storia. It is an application for the computer or iPad that allows students to read and interact with the book in different ways. It allows students to answer questions related to the story, do puzzles, create word banks, use a dictionary to help with meanings of words while reading, and even take notes! I'm still in the beginning stages of understanding this great app, but am looking forward to sharing more once the students have tried it out! Please let me know if you are interested in helping us purchase more digital books for reading!!
