During February, the students will be working on writing stories in literacy groups.  When the children get time at the iPads, they will be working in one of several apps.  This past week the children continued working in StoryKit.  I will post some of these with links to some of the children's examples.  The children did a great job drawing, writing, and talking about their stories.  Mrs. Frederick and I were surprised to see that the children made StoryKits even when they were not asked to do so.  This shows that the children really enjoyed using this app.  We will use DoodleCast, Puppet Pals, and Toontastic throughout the course of the month.  The children will learn about creating their own stories.  Some of the apps guide children through the writing process.  I am excited to see which apps the children most enjoy and which impact learning the most.  This week we got new iPads in Mrs. Frederick's Kindergarten.  There are now six iPads.  It is very exciting to see the use of technology grow and how it is impacting teaching and learning.  Here are a few of the StoryKits the children created.  Copy and paste the link into a new window.  To hear the child's voice, click on the

    My name is Kaitlin Ashley.  I am a few hours away from being a senior at the University of North Alabama.  This blog will be about researching the impacts of iPads in the kindergarten teaching and learning environment.  It will follow this process from the very beginning, and it will keep everyone up-to-date on what is going on in Mrs. Frederick's Kindergarten class.
