Our class has been using our Touch It boards for several weeks now. The students love using this technology for many classroom activities. We have used this technology in many phonemic awareness activities, such finding the rhyming pictures or beginning letter sound identification. We have also used a program to create a calendar for our classroom. It has also allowed us to view video clips that relate to our curriculum. In addtion, during our transportation unit we learned about ramps. We visited a site that had the children move straight lines to form diagonal ramps to ultimately help feed a hungry cat a meatball.
Using this technology is motivating and a fun way to incorporate our curriculum goals.
