Over the past few weeks, students in 4th grade have been writing iBooks using the app Book Creator. This app has so many features, including the ability to open finished books in the iBooks app. However, this time we took it one step farther. Students (with parent permission, of course) had the option to try and publish their finished creations to the actual iBook store. The story, Wolves Win the Game, was the first to be accepted.

Students in Mrs. Sharp’s and Mrs. Downey’s Math and Writing classes used Legos to practice skills! First, they created lego houses based on a STEM activity created by Mrs. Downey. They found the area and perimeter of each of the rooms in their houses, and made sure to include at least one simple machine and working light.
Then, in writing class, they created Lego video trailers using the iMovie app. I created templates for them to use here:
But there are many iMovie Trailer templates out there! Here’s a few more I’m considering using next time:
Here’s what the students created. They only had one class period to write and film their trailers!
Mrs. Bralley’s Third Grade Reading Classes have been learning about Famous People. They’ve read stories, explored interactive iPad apps, researched, made story cubes, and even created their own Glogs on Glogster EDU.
They are very proud of their work. Check out a few of Glogster posters below or check them all out in the class Glog Book.
I’ve been playing around with the free features of Zooburst. Here’s my example book.
Mrs. Parks’ Class animated their pictures of Abraham Lincoln and George Washington using the app ChatterPix Kids. Check it out!
