These are great suggestions for ways to use ipods and ipads in the classroom. Our school is not there yet, but it is nice to have ideas in case we do get there.

Hello all,
I wanted to tell you about an app I've been using called "Teaching Table" ( www.teachingtableapp.com)

It's been allowing me to create my own interactive math lessons. I use it to present some concepts in class, because I can change things really quickly. My students can also use it to solve some of the exercises I create,

Congrats, Kelly, on your new acquisition!

From what I've seen, the app, Plants HD (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/plants-hd/id490444766?mt=8) is the closest to what you are looking for. It is geared toward a younger crowd, but it looks like it has all of the info you are looking for. Hope that helps!

Compare-a-Twist, for any subject

I wanted to suggest the Compare-a-Twist app for teaching any subject with your students.
It's a customizable app that works like an graphic organizer. Students can sort the images or text that you put in to the app into one of the two categories you choose.
You can learn more here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/compare-a-twist/id510922341?mt=8

It also allows you to set up the lesson in google and import them so you can share lessons with your grade-level teams. Students can also create their own lessons and quiz each other or the whole class.
Would work great for review games or introducing concepts.

Ipad Carts

Our district recently purchased Ipad carts for classrooms to share. We feel so lucky to have them and I am eager to find new apps to enhance student learning and achievement, especially in Science.

My question is:

In what ways do you use Ipads with your Science curriculum?

I am currently creating a Science unit based on plants and I am looking for more apps that will teach plant parts, different species of plants, and the needs of plants. Any thoughts, suggestions, or comments are greatly appreciated!

Wonderful Resources

Thank you for taking the time to provide so much insight regarding apps in the elementary classroom. As a first grade teacher, I am looking for ways to integrate technology into my lessons to benefit my students' learning. The resources you provided were extremely helpful and I could get lost for hours researching all of the app options.

Thanks for the info!

Hi there,
Thanks to all that have contributed! This was a particularly interesting read for me, as I am beginning to implement both iPods and iPads into my first grade classroom. Last year was the first year I had dabbled in implementing apps into my classroom and I am looking for more new and effective ways that other primary educators do this. We currently have only one iPod assigned to each of our classrooms and have a portable iPad station available to us for checkout with I believe, 30 iPads on it. I am excited to have the opportunity to use these resources but still looking for any kind of tips I can find on how to use them with my first graders!

Hi Betty,

You might find some value in this podcast with my colleague, Dan Callahan about using iPads in the classroom. You can also check out my Diigo list of iPad links/resources http://www.diigo.com/user/mbteach/ipad.

Since I don't have iPads in my classroom, I am not an expert on this. I hope that these links help!

My school has a grade level set of iPads that rotate through each grade one month at a time. This meant that students could do an extended art project on their iPads during their month. This was new territory for me and a lot of learning on the fly to discover what both my students and the iPads were capable of creating. We were blown away by our results! I wrote a summary post of my favorite lessons here:
