6 Ready To Go iPad Centers

A few of the following iPad Centers/Stations I have posted before, however I thought it might be useful to post them again, at the beginning of the year so you know they are here if you want to try something new during your literacy or math block.  All of the centers can be done using one or two iPads at the center and are actual centers that my students used last year.  I hope you find them useful or they spark new ideas to try with your students.

Writing Center:

App Needed - Write About This



Fluency Center

App Needed - Audioboo, iPhone version


Research Center

App Needed - Pocket Zoo




Math Center

App Needed - Draw & Tell

This one might be a bit confusing at first.  Here is a video of one of my students completing this math station:

  2. I used these activities in a grade 1/2 split last year, but many of them can be adapted to whatever level you are teaching.

  4. I love these centers and would like your permission to share them with the second grade teachers I'm training tomorrow. I will credit you of course. I have a question about Audioboo. How do you handle young students uploading, CIPA and parents who are not comfortable with anything from their child being uploaded?

  5. Please feel free to share them! I don't have any issues with uploading students' work. I am lucky that the parents in my room have been with me for at least 2 years and trust me with these issues. They do sign a form at the beginning of the school year that allows me to publish their work, pictures and video of their children.

  6. Thank you for sharing. I really enjoyed how these stations reinforce your teaching and increasing students to be self-aware of their own learning. Fantastic!

  7. I've just found your blog and love your posts. Thanks for taking the time to share what you are doing. I especially like Draw and Tell having sound recording as well. I'll be trying some of your activities with my Year 1/2's/

  8. I just found your blog and it is inspiring. My 2nd grade class became a 1:1 class in May due to grants and donations, and your site will be helpful this summer as I look for ideas. Thank you.
