iPads in the Junior Classroom

Hi, I would love to know what others are doing with iPads in their classrooms!  I am in a year two class and we have been doing a range of things with them in our room! 

- I use them as part of my reading rotation and specify what apps I want the students to use. 

- I also use it as part of my maths rotation and again specify the apps I want the students to use. 

- I have also got apple t.v set up in my room and use this to airplay shared reading!  My students love reading along with the wonkey donkey! 

- I have also used mirroring and the whiteboard app in a maths group situation where students solve problems on their iPad and then turn the mirroring on as they share how they solved the problem with others!

- I have also worked with students to create their own comic lifes about atheletics day.

Would LOVE to hear what others are doing!

    I have a year 0/1 class.  I use our iPads for lots of things as people have mentioned- reading and maths rotations.  But I use it as my 'stereo' and a techie monitor learns how to navigate the music part for us.

    I also use it for my exercise to music-fitness activities.  

    Students use it for a listening post.  I upload the ready-to-read cds to it and the kids take the books and read along side the audio.

    I'm just starting to create a book shelf of ebooks of the kids' work (or they will) so they can read their own creations.  I'm using the Book Creator app.  It allows you to add drawings or photos from the camera roll, and you can add audio.
