Since receiving the iPad Pilot classroom, life has been so much easier on me with great planning. In my guided math class, I begin each class where the students have 5 minutes to work on their facts using Mad Math Lite and Monster Math. These apps have helped the children improve on their multiplication and division facts. Once the five minutes have passed, we start Guided Math.
|Here is a child working on Mad Math completing multiplication facts.|
While at my station, I use various apps like: Alphabet Magnetic Letters, Nearpod, and Educreations. For example, we were working on multiplication a couple of weeks ago and I used a Nearpod Presentation on multiplication to engage students. They were asked how to solve a multiplication problem various ways, work out problems, and even answered a survey about how they felt about multiplication. I could easily see how they worked out their problems and how they felt about doing multiplication. There are so many possibilities to use the iPad in your Guided Math and I could talk about it for days but I will move on to my stations.

In the next couple of weeks, check back because I will be posting a blog about my students creating iMove Trailers to go along with our Traditional Literature Unit.
