Tried It Tuesday

Thanks Holly!  This is my first time linking up with Tried It Tuesday. 
I saw this idea on Pinterest, so if it is your idea please drop me an email so I can give you credit.
Magic Reading Stones (that's what we called it) - students use these clear glass stones to follow along as they read.  The magic comes when they put the stones on top of the words, the words get bigger!  The stones also helped the students read faster.  Which will certainly lead to increased fluency.

Heat Sense app - this app was a big hit to practice spelling words.  Students write their spelling words, then the words magically disappear.  The app settings allow background and line color changes.  You can change the rate at which the lines disappear.
Have a great Wednesday!

  1. That is a very interesting way to use ipads to teach spelling words. It really helps for it to erase the word after they write it and then have to write it again from memory. I thought this was also a great way to integrate technology into the classroom.
