Our Smartboard is an amazing tool. We can interact with what we are learning. AirServer is great too because we can remotely access what is on our iPad! This is a great way to introduce new apps and demonstrate 'how to" use. We can also highlight what we understand.
Today we explored counting order. We also captured numbers, turned them upside down and even made the numbers larger and smaller. We are exploring "how to" use the Smartboard tools to help us explore learning.

Our Smart board is awesome. During our morning meeting time we are able to find words, letters, sounds and other things that we are exploring during the day. We are able to capture, highlight, make smaller, larger and even clone!
Letter and Sounds!
Exploring Numbers and Subitizing!
This morning we explored subtilizing and number sense fun! Our Smart board makes it really easy for us to manipulate an idea and interact with it too!
We also use our Smart board to identify letters, sounds and words! The leader of the day helps us decide what to look for!
Enhancing What We Notice!

The leader of the day uses the computer to build words. Then the leader asks for a volunteer to come up to the board and show how they know it is a cvc word. The SMART board is a wonderful tool that helps us to share and show how we know something!
During our Echo time we are now beginning to create cvc words! Our SMART board is able to help use create these cvc words too! The leader of the day builds a word on the board, while we create the word on our iPads after we using our tapping hand to sound out the words.
Last week we began exploring the life cycle of insects. My students explored and observed the different features that insects have. This is what they discovered; 6 legs, 3 body parts(learning the names),big eyes that see close up(this was great as I could introduce a new vocabulary word, compound eyes), wings and antennae.
