We are sooooooo fortunate at KE to have acquired two ipad labs containing class sets of ipads! Today the third grades were lucky to be the very first classes to use the ipads. Mrs. Casper, our former KE teacher librarian who currently helps us with technology, came to our language classes to introduce the ipads to us.
Students learned how to carefully get the ipads from the cart, how to use the special covers, and about some of the basic ipad apps. We are very excited to use ipads in our classrooms!
The ipads are housed in a cart for all classes to share

Taking a spelling test on Spelling City (not all Spelling City games will work on the ipad since the require flash player -- we hope to download the Spelling City app soon!)
