What a difference a day makes. We started our day using the iPads for reading. We practiced highlighting our vocabulary words and using the built in dictionary to help us define the words.
A little bit later in the day we used the Socrative app to do a "Getting to Know Me" activity. Instead of doing the traditional paper and pencil approach to What I Did This Summer, we went digital. I actually think the students put more effort into the assignment because they were typing instead of writing.
