It is summer time for Kilby!  This class will be moving to first grade in August.  I will be following this class next year, and we will continue our research and great work with this class.  We have some very neat plans to transition the children's story telling skills into Mathematics journaling in the fall.  We will not only utilize iPads for the journaling, but also to improve their geometry skills in the spring.  We plan to work in our great architecture in Florence and compare this to Florence, Italy.  We will use the iPads in some very fun and innovative ways throughout the year.  Kilby's upcoming kindergarteners will continue to use iPads in story telling and many of the other skills learned throughout kindergarten.  We have applied for many grants to hopefully help supply iPads for first grade.  Though these kindergarteners are not kindergarteners anymore, our journey is not over!  I will keep this blog as our journey continues into first grade.  I hope everyone has a safe and fantastic summer!  See you in August!

    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.
