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!

    Hi Alannah, I am using Book Creator with my Y3/4 for wring at the moment.  I use mirroring on apple TV to model process to whole class. Then 1 group per week is able to work directly on iPads after planning on conventional paper and pen then write directly on Book Creator. When finished they read it on ibook. Working Well. Last term we used Brushes for drawing backgrounds and characters or took photos of them selves or backgrounds. These were exported to photos. We then used them in Puppet Pals so their plays are there own work. Both really successful. Cheers Claire
