Long i...Ipad




I don't know what it is about long i that is so inspiring, but along with my long i fries {check out the post from a few weeks ago}, I have created a mini activity kit {that I used...and LOVED this past week} called "The Long i Ipad!"  Maybe I just have Ipads on the brain since Jon Cooley {a.k.a Mr. Cooley/hubs} bought a fantastic new Ipad!  We might have an Apple purchasing addiction in our household.  Anyway...back to the cool phonics ideas...in small groups the kids played iBingo (looks like an ipad with long i apps!).  We also created a long i Ipad anchor chart as a class!  The long i apps they came up with were hilarious!!  Examples:  Fat guys, drive the car, find the baby, my tunes, ice cream catch, guinea pig fight, the Right I Spy!  WOW!  I am always so impressed with their creativity!  It is posted on TpT if my teacher friends are interested! Click the cloud near the bottom of my blog to take you to my store!


***In other news....I hope you like the new blog design as much as I do!!!  It was created by Becca at Jumping Jax Designs!  It matches my personality to a T!  Ha!  Thanks so much, Becca!***

Here is our GLORIOUS new iPad!  It is the COOLEST thing ever! {Of course I was checking out the new blog design.} I wish that I could have 4 or 5 for my classroom!  :)

LOVE the new look! The birds are adorable!

I have to start by saying I adore the new design! Would you be willing to give the link of your designer?

Second, I am just in love with the Long iPad activity. I will have to file that idea away for next year.

Third, I agree that the iPad is the coolest thing! Once I get my ipod touch grant funded, I hope, I am going to ask for an iPad.

I'm a few months late posting, but what ipad apps/games do you use in the classroom? I received one last May and am super ready to use it in class this year! Any ideas would be great!
