I LOVE Tagxedo. It is a fun way to learn to make pictures with words. It is funny sometimes because it does not look like what you want it to. You can insert your own pictures, change the color to something that fits in, and put in your own words. We used it for poetry in our class! You can make advertisements like some posters or fliers. Tagxedo is fun.

4th Grade iPad Pilot


Our fourth graders have led the way with our technology transition by piloting 1:1 iPad Minis in their classrooms. They have been hard at work creating iMovies, mind maps, eBooks and more!

The students have really taken off and expressed their creative sides by designing their own eBooks with the Book Creator app for iPad. In Mrs. Wheelock’s class, students researched a unique endangered animal and put their discoveries together into ebooks that included images, video with picture-in-picture and even customized drawings. In Mrs. Bald’s class, students did a similar project all about spiders! You can view and download the students’ creations on your iPhone, iPod or iPad by visiting our iTunes U collection. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.
