6 Words and App Smashing

It's time for a bit of app smashing and a linky with iTeach 1:1!
In app smashing, the key is to make sure to use apps that allow you to save to the camera roll. Saving to the camera roll allows you to post it, send it or share it!

A 6 Word Memoir is one of my favorite writing activities to do at the beginning of the school year. It's a great way to get to know your students.  
I love using task card. They allow students to be more independent when creating their product. 

This task card is for younger students. 
Click on the task cards above to download a copy.

Let's start smashing!
Dragon Dictation is great for your hesitant writers or students that have a hard time typing. Using Dragon allows thoughts to flow without getting bogged down in the typing and spelling.

There are several paint types of apps, but my new favorite is Zoodle Pad!
Use it to paint, draw, or just doodle crazy designs! The very cool part is that you can play it back as a movie.

Some features  . . .

ChatterPix Kids time!
Take the saved graphic and open it into ChatterPix so you can add voice!

Happy app smashing!
Happy Tuesday!
