First graders are working hard in math journaling through the app EduCreations.  Students seem to enjoy working in this app. It is very similar to Doodlecast.  Students draw pictures and record their voices.  It does have a place for text, and students do not have to talk as they draw.  Students have written many prompts so far including how we see math in every day life, writing story problems, and words that go along with addition and subtraction.  Students have enjoyed creating story problems using this app.  Mrs. Wicks's first grade has also implemented another journaling app called Smart Note Free.  This is a free app that actually allows students to keep an on-going journal that they can return to.  Students have been able to use this app for several different subjects.  The class is enjoying their new iPads and utilizing them in different ways.

    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.
