Fiafia

The adage 'slow and steady' has been at the forefront of any of our decisions and so far has proved to be advantageous to both the teachers and learners. Last week, the day after Fiafia, we were all exhausted so decided to up our game and throw together two learning skills the children had been working on separately. With a bit of scaffolding the children were asked to draw and record their experience from the previous night. The whole class know how to use the drawing tools on Explain Everything and the recording button so put them together and we have a wonderfully illustrated story!

Number pictures

Here is one way we have used Explain Everything for maths. This can be used in all maths stages. To make sure the children are on task we have a 'number' checklist they must complete. Today Francis was asked to show his understanding of the number 5. He put 5 insects on to his 10 square, took a photo, re-sized it, saved it in Explain Everything, re-positioned the picture and then wrote the number 5 using his stylus!
