December Tech Ideas

Here are a few December Ideas that @JulieRivasLopez and I rounded up for our December Tech Ideas Webinar.

Here's a quick summary of some of the things we shared during our session.
December Tech Ideas Symbaloo (all of our links)

Creating Snowflakes
With the links to create a snowflake, consider having students create a snowflake in the classroom and take it with them to computer lab to see if they can recreate if digitally. Why did it work, why didn't it work.

Creating a Gingerbread Man
Have students create a convincing piece of writing to convince the audience not to eat him. Allow them to create a digital gingerbread man in the computer lab. Extension- take a photo of the gingerbread man with your iPad and use the ChatterPix apps to have students record the plea of the gingerbread man.

Use the StoryBots Tap and Sing App during the class Holiday Party. Consider using the Christmas Karaoke App to enjoy singing, reading fluency, and learn a few new vocabulary words.

I know there are more things we covered, you'll find all the links in the Symbaloo.
