App of the Week

photoI first used Play School Art Maker at a conference for regional consultants. We were asked to work in groups and summarize what we had learnt at the conference. The results were clever and very entertaining. So this app can be used very successfully with a variety of age ranges. I use it in the classroom to respond to reading. I can use a background from the program or take a photo or screen shot of the book the class has read in modelled or guided reading. Students select a play school character and then record their responses to the book. This can then be played back by attaching your iPad to the SMART board using a VGA connector. And the best thing … this app is free!
