iPods in the Classroom and at Home


Posted by mrspatterson | Posted in classroom, skills | Posted on January 23, 2012

It seems that several of our classmates have gotten iPods for Christmas! I have had a couple of parents ask me what apps would be good to put on the iPods for their children. A.J.’s mom said she looked on the blog and didn’t find it! What a good idea! Well, it’s here now! I have made a page (see above). I have quickly put a few app suggestions in each of our learning categories. I will try to add more over the next few days. I have found that iPods are awesome for reinforcing and practicing skills but I would be remiss as a reading teacher if I didn’t also say nothing replaces the benefits of reading aloud to and with your child.

Everything in moderation, as my mother always says.
