Another Awesome Post from Kristi Meeuwse, ADE - Digital Reading Resources

I absolutely love, written by Kristi Meeuwse.  She is a kindergarten teacher in a 1:1 iPad classroom, and an Apple Distinguished Educator.  She has so many wonderful ways of using iPads in her classroom to enhance student learning, and create a student-centered classroom where true personalized learning occurs.  I encourage you to take the time to read through her posts.

Her latest post features resources for digital reading, which is a question I am asked often.  Mrs. Meeuwse provides her students with an amazing collection of reading materials, both digitally andi n traditional print.  I really love her idea of adding an icon on the homescreen of your iPad to allow kids to quickly access digital books through the site Unite for Literacy.

Adding an icon to your homescreen is so easy!  This will allow students to quickly access websites that you use often, like Moby Max or Xtra Math.  Pull up the site using Safari, then click the sharing icon.
Once the options open, select "Add to home screen" and then select "Add".  (You can adjust the name of the item, if you need to.)
