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 heard a few people mentioning Book Creator - what ages are you using this with?  We have just got iPads and requested Book Creator, but only the senior classes ended up getting it.  Would love to hear from anyone who has used Book Creator with kids up to Year 4, how you are using it and how you find it.

    Also, can you create talking animal characters in Puppet Pals?
