Hi everyone! It's back to school time and we all know what that means for teachers and families. Open up the wallet! Things really have a way of adding up, don't they? It's nice to get a little savings whenever possible.
One tool I use quite a bit for my own business, as well as during OG sessions is my i-Pad. Today I'm going to share two ways I use it.
1. Last summer I found a super helpful and FREE app called OG cards. Created by The Mayerson Academy, it's an interactive take on using phonogram flashcards.
Here's a pic of the screen for the letter B:
- When would you use this? As a quick at-home practice,
- In a literacy center, or
- At the beginning of an OG lesson.
2. I also use my iPad for reading QR codes. QR stands for Quick Response. Once you download a QR reader app, you can use it to scan QR codes. By scanning over the code, you have access to a website or linked file. I love QR codes for research with young children. You can create a safe browsing experience for your students by having a QR code take you directly to a website. I use them in my non-fiction projects, task cards and lap-books. Here are directions I used for one of my QR code life cycle products:
