Catchy Words Spelling AR

Posted in apps, augmented reality, fun events, games, second grade, and spelling

First and second graders had fun on Digital Learning Day today in the Jackson Library! They used a new app to play a spelling game called Catchy Words. They have to find the letters in augmented reality, ‘catch’ them with an iPad, and place the letters in boxes to spell a mystery word. We watched Kirsten Hood‘s video to see how to do it. Fun!

Spelling Our Names with Osmo

Posted in games, and kindergarten

Kindergarten enrichment loves our new @playosmo game! When I was at Ogle, I took photographs of the kindergarteners and uploaded their names into Osmo Words in my online account. Then they play in ‘Versus’ mode (pairs) to see who can earn the most points for correct letters to spell the person’s name. The part the kids enjoy the most is calling over the person whose picture is displayed and getting ‘expert’ help. Fun!

Compound Eggs

Posted in games, holiday, picture book lesson, and second grade

Last week in the Jackson Library, second grade learned about compound words. After reading Walton’s Once I Was a Bull…Frog book, the kids came up to the poster to match the second half of the word to the first. It helped to put the picture of the compound word on the second half. (ESL modification) At the tables, they created compound words with plastic egg halves. This part of the lesson is from The Lesson Plan Diva. I gave each group the same words written on plastic Easter egg halves and when the timer started, they had to put them together to create compound words. The first two winning groups to put all of their eggs together correctly received graphic novel/magazine passes. Check out the video of the kids at work!

Halloween Motel Factile

Posted in fifth grade, games, holiday, reading skills, technology, and TTESS 1819

Last week in the Jackson Library, fifth graders played a Jeopardy-like game called Factile.

I created questions in categories based on the book, Halloween Motel, on a Jeopardy-style board. Then I purchased the Premium version of Factile to 1) print out my questions and answers and to 2) be able to play in Buzzer mode. If you use the free version, you can still play but you have to have the teams take turns or determine yourself who raised their hand first. In buzzer mode, the computer tells me who buzzed in first by putting a yellow thumbs up on that team’s avatar.

First, you open your saved game in Factile and then click ‘Buzzer Mode’. Then it generates a code like Kahoot. Give one iPad to each team captain and have them type in the code. Then you start the game and choose a category and question amount. The computer will tell you who buzzed first and then you either click the check mark to issue their points or the red x to deduct points. The kids loved it!
