I am flipped and tablet certified!!

I recently discovered Sophia.org through Twitter and I found FREE...yes FREE professional development!  I just had to check it out!  I took the Flipped Classroom Certification and I loved it.  I started to dabble in flipped classroom this year and the tutorial was beneficial to keep me going.  After that certification, I decided to take the i-Pad Prepared Certification.  The links in this tutorial were amazing!  To complete each certification, one needs to create their own lesson or tutorial.  I have created a lesson that uses flipped learning and i-pad apps.  Check it out below!

Aurasma Pet Show 2014

My  Kindergarteners created their own talented pet out of recycled material. Each student created a video of their pet and its trick. The videos and pictures were uploaded to an app called Aurasma. During the pet show, the students scanned the picture using Aurasma and watched the pet come alive on the i-pad. Here are the pictures of students viewing the pets during the pet show! The students are learning that many devices can be used to inspire creativity! You can try this app on an Android or iOS device for free!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

I am granted with a challenge in my dramatic play area due to space! I am always trying to create an engaging area that promotes playful learning and socialization in a tight space. I was unsure how this dramatic play would turn out with the kids, but I took the risk. Turns out the kids LOVED it! I created the Wacky World of Dr. Seuss and the question addressed... What would you do if the Cat in the Hat came to your house?
I created hats for the Cat in the Hat and Thing 1 and 2.  The kids had fun using their imagination in the wacky and CrAzY world of Dr. Seuss!
