Handwriting with iPads

Today for handwriting I modeled tricky letters such as r, d and k on the Interactive Whiteboard. After explicitly modeling the formation for each letter the students engaged in 1:1 iPad handwriting on the application ‘Doodle Buddy’. The students were extremely engaged and did fabulous letter formations for these tricky letters. After approximately 15 minutes of handwriting on the iPads the children went off to complete handwriting with writing pencils at there tables and to my amazement did the best letter formation to date!

Grandparents day

Great to see so many Grand-parents and special friends able to visit the Prep area this morning. The students were very proud to show them around. I even saw one prep student asking her grand father to Be Quiet as they walked past the library – seems those reminders are working!

This great app is allowing our students to Show Us exactly what they know about books they read. The student who created the video below was supported to demonstrate her ability to read punctuation and phrasing through her use of voice, tone and pauses. She does a fantastic job of bringing the story to life – have a look to see what you think!
