Free play

Students have free play time everyday. I think this time is critical for early primary students. Today, one student took it upon herself to make some houses out of wood. Then she took pictures of them and labelled them. Here is her work:

I can't tell you how excited I was to see a student using the iPads and creating her own activity. It was neat to see her making a connection between some of the things we have been doing and her own ideas.


  1. I like all details that you provide in your articles.

  2. This is fantastic! What a great idea for the IPads ... You could then print them and use the pictures to label things ... Or, put them in a "museum" where students showcase their most prized creations!

    Thanks for the inspiration,

    1. Thanks. My students love to send their pictures and all the work to their Evernote notebook. That is where they have an eportfolio full of all their creations!

  3. You should check out Penny's Pieces. This is a great app for both school counselors and teachers.
