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!

The fourth grade Fenway and Hattie book club met today during lunch and played fun games about the book! First, we played a Quizizz game to review the middle chapters. Then the kids solved a crossword puzzle and played a fun computer mystery game created by the author, Victoria Coe! I’m  setting up a fun Breakout EDU game for next week!

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!
