I saw the BEST lesson in Michelle Doyle’s K5 class last week that I have to share. She used Number Pieces Basics on her iPad, plastic base 10 blocks, the Promethean Board, and Air Server to model counting and place value with her students.
First, she wrote a 2 digit number on her iPad in Number Pieces Basics. Then a student pulled the digital representation using the blocks from Number Pieces onto the iPad. This was projected on the Promethean Board via Air Server.
Next, she asked the student to use the manipulatives from the plastic tub to represent the number she wrote on her iPad.
Then, she turned her camera tool on and used it as a document camera and held it over the manipulatives as the student counted. All students were able to see what was happening on the Promethean Board as the student counted out loud. The teachers were able to see if he was using one-to-one correspondence and if he could identify 10s and 1s place value. #formativeassessment
The use of the iPad as a portable document camera to display students’ work and projects for all to see is phenomenal!
Thank you Michelle for being so innovative and creative!
