For the love of Technology

 The word of the decade is..Technology, it is EVERYWHERE. I am pleased to say we use technology on a daily basis in our classroom. I have added a tab to our classroom blog called "Learning Links". You can click the tab to find several links to great educational websites. The list will be updated and grow as time goes on. One link I want to explain a little it Spelling City. IT IS GREAT!!! I can type in our weekly spelling word and students have endless opportunities.

  Check out Spelling City!!!!

Another AWESOME piece of technology that we love is our I PAD. I wrote a grant earlier this year. Our school board funded an IPAD for our classroom!!!! LOVE IT! I do not have a personal IPAD so I am still "playing" and find new APPS everyday. The IPAD is ALWAYS in use.

Our Technology Team has hosted an "APP Party" or "APPY Hour" (if you wish :))! It is a fun time for teachers to share their favorite free and/or purchased APPS. They also share about APPS they are not pleased with or are not what they thought they would be! This is so helpful for people that are not "IPAD Savy" ME!

What are your favorite APPS for the classroom? What is your favorite website or piece of technology for the classroom?
