Recording Students’ Reflections

Posted by gferrero on October 28, 2015

After our Math activity on money the students were able to take a screen shot of their coin combination and then they were able to explain how they solved this problem. Students recorded their understanding through Draw and Tell.

We also app smashed apps, using 100’s charts and Draw and Tell to explain their understanding of skip counting. This way students reflected on their learning and recorded it.

FlipQuiz is a free website for educators which allows you to create games using the classic “Jeopardy”-style format. I like to use this site when reviewing for math tests using Everyday Math tests as my guide. I create my categories at the top, and make easier questions reflecting part A of the test for 100,200,300 points, and use the 400 and 500 point questions those that reflect Part B of the Everyday Math tests. This site could be used in any subject. You can also add images to the questions, by copying and pasting the image URL when selecting the image icon during the creation stage (editing mode). When you are ready to play, you select “presentation mode”.

You can try a demo here.

Or check out some examples of FlipQuizzes I have made below:

Going crazy organizing your student pictures in your shared Ipads?

Why not try EASY CLASS CAM app?  Easy Class Cam is the ultimate camera app for classes or families with shared iPads/iPods. Photos taken by students/children are automatically placed in an album belonging to them, making them super easy to find later on. Folders are easily created. Pictures of your students can even be included on your folders, for those younger kids that still do not know how to read their names.
