DECEMBER
In the month of December I wanted to focus on more sight word practice for some of the students of my class. This was decided after completing an assessment that included high frequency word automaticity. Some of my students are still lacking the automaticity on the kindergarten list as well as the 1st grade words that have been introduced so far this year. I found several apps that I've been using this month to help my students gain the automaticity they need. I found some of the apps more useful than others. The classroom favorite at the moment is the Word Bingo and Sight words. The Sight Words app has been fun for my students because I was able to make a list of our districts words and have students record their voices speaking the high frequency words. It has been fun for students using the app hearing their classmates voices on the ipad2.

In the month of January I would like to find some apps that will help me with classroom productivity. I would also like to find an app that the students could use in my classroom to type their small moments that they have written into a document that could then be emailed and then printed after editing and revising has been completed.
