Chalkboard app

This is a brilliant app.  I love using this app as a warm up first thing at the beginning of class.  For example, the other day the students wrote down a list of three things they are thankful for this Thanksgiving.  We used this list as a springboard into a more descriptive, vivid list of things.  Using the chalkboard to record ideas rather than a piece of paper motivates the students.

Other ways to use this app include for vocabulary practice, spelling bees, brainstorming ideas, etc.

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.
