The One iPad Class ~ Essentials, Part 2

This is part 2 of my essentials app post.

You can see Part 1 here.

First up is,
 Image result for remind {FREE} Remind is a way for you to stay in touch with your parents-without them having your phone number or them having yours! It can even work with students!
It's super easy to set up and use.

The Brown Bag Teacher and Flapjack Educational Resources both have posts on this (and I'm sure there are many more!)

Next is:

You just have to add your class list.
Decide if you want a certain number of teams, or a certain number of people.

Give it a shake and it will create the groups for you!

You can also use the 'pick one' feature to just pick on one student (similar to picking sticks)
Very easy to use, and it takes the fuss and bother out of partners!

Last, but certainly not least,
Image result for pinterest {FREE}Pinterest (What? That's old and outdated, you say!) I actually use this quite a lot in my class-especially when making anchor charts!

First, I follow a lot of educamation types of people, so my home page usually looks like this
(Although there are days when it's mostly crochet pictures :)

I will search during class for whatever skill we are working on, and I'll get to pull up a feed of things related to that skill. I can scroll through and pull out and mention the things that I think are important and relevant.

Plus, it's also good when you have a few minutes and want to procrastinate on the paper grading :) I mean, when all you papers are done being graded ;)

Smiles and Sunshine,
Kaitlyn
