There is a lot of interesting info about devices, platforms, and apps here in the “Phones, iPads, eReaders, and Tablets” session this morning. While e-magazine subscription service Zinio seemed to generate the most discussion, I cannot stop thinking about using devices and apps in story times.
Colleagues are being incredibly helpful in sharing their favorite children’s book apps: The Monster at the End of This Book, Sandra Boynton’s collection, and the Felt Board app seem to be best picks. I’m going to play around with some of these apps, especially free apps, to see how they might work their way into my story time rotation along with books, songs, rhymes, and finger plays. A variety of activities keeps kids engaged, after all.
Do you have favorite apps to use in story time? I want to know!
