Today in class, we went on a letter hunt with our Kindergarten Students. We reminded students of our rules for using ipads: Hold it with two hands, use walking feet and only take appropriate photos.
We introduced the lesson by modeling how to locate the camera on our devices (iPads) and how to point and shoot. We also reminded them how to zoom in and out by pinching or spreading their fingers. Students were then given a recording sheet to color letters as they identified them. Once all the letters were located, we asked students to sit back down at their seats.
BONUS! This lesson can also be used as formative assessment for matching and identifying letters! CC RF.K.1.b – Recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
We then modeled for them how to use the editing features in the Photo App. We showed them how to align the box to isolate the letter they found and make it larger.
Our next step will be to import these into an app to create an ABC book. Be on the lookout for this in our next post!
