For the Primary Crowd: Language Arts and Polar Bears!

The ReadWriteThink web site includes an Alphabet Organizer tool that allows students to create alphabet charts and books. The object is for students to make visual connections between letters and the first letters of common words. Lesson plans and ideas for using the Alphabet Organizer are also available. This 3-minute video from the Free Technology for Teachers web site explains how the Alphabet Organizer works.

The iStorybook iPad app offers 25 free books for children ages 2-8. Students can read the storybooks themselves or listen to the accompanying audio while they follow the text and enjoy the pictures.

The free Imagistory app allows students to narrate their own picture books. The app provides the pictures, and students can add their own words and storylines. Read more on the Free Technology for Teachers web site.

Read how one Kindergarten teacher uses the Explain Everything iPad app to evaluate her students' reading fluency.

Did you know you can bring polar bears into your classroom this fall? After registering, you and your students can view free webcasts of the polar bear migration! The project begins this week with a polar bear cam.
