It is so exciting to know that our iPad Mini's, along with the superb app "Nearpod", are being used to enhance close reading at the first grade level. Students are able to closely read along with the teacher each on their own device as the teacher "sends" each page to the student devices. Periodically, the students are asked questions related to what they have read. These questions often require answers that the students can draw on their devices. There are many different ways for teachers to receive feedback from the students thus greatly increasing the engagement level of the students. TERRIFIC!!
