iPad2

We are getting one of these for each of our classrooms:







I know I am super excited. When I heard that our grant was funded, I was so excited I yelled for joy. Right in the middle of class. No kidding! Then I realized that it was only partially funded and we had to figure out how to come up with a third of the money. Today our principal told us he came up with a way to help us out with getting our grant fully funded. We are feeling pretty blessed!

If we are lucky, they were ordered today. Fingers crossed that they will be here before Christmas break.

We have a few ideas of what we would like to use them in our classrooms. If you are lucky enough to have one, how do you use it in your classroom? Do students get to use it, if so how? (Remember we are blessed with ONE iPad2 each.) Are there any thing we can use them for beside "apps"?

We plan to have iPod touch centers to use during Guided Reading groups. Little Speller is a good app that practices Dolch sight words.
