Fun Friday: Apps for your classroom
Please note that unless specified, all the apps mentioned are free. Also note that I have not been compensated in any way for mentioning them, I just like them!
If you are teaching pre-k or k, the first app I would download is Little Writer.
For math fact fluency in grades 2-5, I love Number Run.
For writing in grades 2-5, I really like PictureBook.
For formative (or even summative) assessment, I LOVE Socrative. It's like those kind of Senteo clickers (that nobody in my school really ever used as they were a pain in the rear to set up), only better.
You do have to set up a teacher account first (and there is a teacher app for your device, or you could just use the computer), so you can't just download it and expect to work wonders right away---there is some setup first! You can upload quizzes, have students answer ABCD questions, use exit tickets. It's great for reviewing things.
All grades, Quick Voice Record:
I hope these are helpful. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
