|Burr District Elementary School|
Last week the students began using ipads in the classroom. They have been working on math and reading. For math they are working on TenMarks through Amazon. Their individual passwords will be coming home shortly so they can continue to practice at home on an ipad or computer. In reading, the students used EPIC! They read a non fiction book with their reading group and then had a book discussion. We are just getting started on these conversations, but the children enjoyed using the ipads for as the books. They read the book one time by themselves or with partners and then listened to the book being read to them through the program. The children really enjoyed that. We will be continuing this ipad for the remainder of the school year. Tomorrow the children will begin working on turning one of the informational writing books into an electronic book. These will be posted here on the website as well for you to enjoy.
