Frog and Toad Inspires Students!

http://youtu.be/z-qjUf8sSkE Last week, we worked on elements of reading fluency. We read stories from Arnold Lobel's Frog and Toad books, and listened to others read them on YouTube. Students discovered that when they read aloud with good expression, they tend to "hear" that voice when they read silently. They were thrilled to know that it increased their comprehension, exponentially! I'm so glad I had my phone handy when this little girl erupted with her discovery!

Hi Karen ,

I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

The link to the app is: 

iPhone/iPad
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/augmenter-augmented-reality/id997354409?ls=1&mt=8

android:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.augmented.android

You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

happy teaching!
