Day 39 - iPads in Action - Susan Astone, Francis Wyman Principal

 This post originally appeared on Principal Astone's Blog 

Mr. Levin teaches first grade students how to use Tumble-books and Accelerated Reader on their  iPads. Students will choose books to read based on their own individualized interests and reading levels. 

They will  complete Accelerated Reader quizzes  to assess comprehension. Students have access  to hundreds of book selections right at their fingertips!

Grade 4 students work on science research projects using iPads. Students search for information about their animals from selected websites. They read  a variety of articles, view photos and learn vocabulary through the interactive options  of the iPads. Students read a variety of informational materials without leaving their classroom. Students  appreciate being able to tap on bolded vocabulary words to develop their understanding of content vocabulary.
