WOW – not world of warcraft, but wow each kid can experience being the one that got to “do” the activity

Used Pages to have kids create tables.  Learning to use correct vocabulary of rows and columns and what a “cell” refers to in a table.  Multiplying and dividing by powers of ten – each student created a table with place values ones through millions. They charted a number and then saw what happens when you multiply that same number times 10, 100, 1000.  Seeing patterns of how digits move same number of places as the power of 10.  – very effective

Pages tables were good again for making tables of fractions, equivalent fractions and decimals.

About diaryoftheipadteachers

We are a team of 5th grade teachers in Denver, Colorado teaching at a private school embarking on a year long journey with a 1:1 iPad pilot for our students. This means every student and teacher has their own iPad 2 for the 2011-2012 school year. In this blog, the team of MESH teacher (Math, English, Science, History) will share their successes and challenges, thoughts and ideas with regards to this pilot. We'll share resources and ideas for integrating technology into the classroom and hopefully gain some followers who learn and share with/from us.
