Spotlight App for October

This year I will be starting a new series of Blog Posts concerning a different spotlight App every few weeks. At Pond Cove, we now have 2:1 iPads in every classroom. Our folders include ELA, Math, Math Tools, Google, Coding, Testing, and my personal favorite Creation.

One of my favorite apps in the Creation folder is ToonTastic. ToonTastic is an awesome digital storytelling app, free on the app store, which has recently been purchased by Google. With the purchase, all of the best features of ToonTastic are now free!

ToonTastic is a wonderful integration app for all subjects. In writing, it helps students to review key terms like conflict, and resolution. In Science, students can explain key concepts like this video about momentum. In Social Studies, students can use the History Characters, or even create their own, to help explain important figures or events throughout time.

Please comment or email with any questions or thoughts. The first November spotlight app will be Skoolbo.
