Year 2 students practiced sentence construction using the Jumbled sentences 1 free app, one for a series. Through trial and error, students tried out different sentences till they got the correct ones. Then, someone figured there would always be a clue in the middle of the circling words. We will explore Jumbled Sentences 2 and more soon!
Year 5 students flexed their problem solving skills by playing the Pirate Treasure Hunt game, a free iPad app. Students were required to solve eight problems to find the hidden treasure. The whole class came alive as they tried to come up with solutions using their math and literacy skills.
Problem solving skills and decision making is one of the strands we use to assess students. The app allows students to gain confidence to solve more complex problems.
