1st Grade Tablet Implementation

  • 17 Classroom Tablets Always Charging at Tablet Table
  • Began Implementation after Spring Break
  • 1st Week: worked with small groups of students teaching them how to care for and to use the tablets, then exploration on their own.
  • 2 new apps are introduced every week and used by small groups during station time.  Parents are informed of these apps as well so they can download and use them at home.
  • A variety of apps are used to practice skills every Wednesday with 6th grade buddies.
  • Sample lesson: groups of students used 1st grade verb flashcards on a flashcard app to play charades.
  • Plans for next year
    • Use online programs and apps as assessments and record students' scores.
    • Use the tablets for more whole-group learning.
