Perfect Captions


I placed Perfect Captions in Presentation Tools because it really does not apply to a specific subject area. It really could be used for any subject. I recently have used Perfect Captions with several first grade classrooms. Students can use it to share a picture of their learning, or a picture that the teacher has provided for a project. The student then can place text directly on the picture.
Wifth first grade students, I had students create their own book reviews to introduce it. They took a picture of the book's cover, and wrote a sentence to share what they like about the book. Please also keep in mind that this is the first time they have used the app. It does take a little practice.
Here are several examples of a student work:

I also did this with a first grade class to make a Christmas card. For this class, I had a set of pictures that I collected in a Box.com shared folder. I taught the kids how to download the pictures to their device. They then imported the picture from their camera roll, and typed a holiday message. It was a fun, first project using the application. The students quickly caught on to using it and were able to make a Christmas card in a short period of time. Here is an example of a Christmas Card they made:
