In April, the class continued to use the TeachMe:Kindergarten app. I was very happy with how engaged the students were and the results I was seeing. The only problem was the fact that you had to keep purchasing players in order to get the whole class using the app. Each additional player pack is 1.99. I still think it is worth it. It is a great balance of work, reward and play. They look forward to earning their coins to create their scenes. I like how the app rotates between sight words, math and spelling. It keeps them so motivated.

A new student entered my classroom this month. He is very behind in many of his academic skills. In order to strengthen his skills I use the iPad during his intervention time. I am using many of the apps we had success with earlier in the year as well as some new ones to build his literacy and numeracy skills. This is his favorite part of the day!
