Tuesday Homework

My kindergarten friends at Wayne Center Elementary are rocking Hello Crayon and Google Drive!

Students are now taking their iPads home for homework on Tuesday. Mrs. Kuehnert wanted a good way for students to turn in their weekly creations in an organized manner. Google Drive is just the ticket as students can submit into a teacher's shared folder. Also, their work can be submitted offline. When the students return to school, it will sync to their teacher's shared folder.

For practice, students wrote using Hello Crayon. They had to include the letter of the week (w), a word that starts with that letter and an illustration to match the word. After they saved their image, they went to the "incoming tab" in Google Drive on their iPad and found a folder with their name and the word "Tuesday". In less than 15 minutes, 20 kindergarten students did their work and submitted to Google Drive. It was awesome!
