Hi! I am a pediatric occupational therapist and iDevices are one of the best tools to come along in a long while. I apologize for this tree being a bit out of control....I'll try to organize a bit if I ever get a moment. I'm interested in all things special ed, pediatric rehab, or creative! Thanks for joining me. Feb 7

Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction.
Guided Math is similar to Guided Reading in that the teacher puts the students into small groups and the students work on specific standards being taught in centers around the room. You should try your hardest to have all the centers hitting the same topic.
This page provides examples of 1st Grade Number Activities aligned with the Common Core State Standards. All activities are suitable for use in Math Centers, small group or whole class settings and are designed to elicit a range of responses and provide opportunities for students to communicate their reasoning and mathematical thinking. All files for the 1st Grade Number Activities listed are in PDF format and can be accessed using Adobe Reader .
The iPads are finally set up and ready to go into the classrooms! It happened to be our first graders who were the first ones to get their hands on them!

Using Blooms Taxonomy in education is a highly effective way to scaffold learning for the students.
How do I get Apps to this device?
One question that comes into my inbox or on Twitter a lot lately is one dealing with iPads. Many schools and classrooms all over are investing in these devices and educators want to know how to use them effectively, apps to consider and more. In keeping with the "My Favorite Resources" theme ( last week I listed my favorite resources for talking about Twitter ) here are my go-to resources when people ask me about iPads in the Classroom.
With all the growing interest in tablet-based computing in schools, I thought it would be timely to share once again “My 5 Favorite Tablet PC Tips for Educators”.

I have posted about Pearltrees before, it is an app that allow you to collect, curate, make connections and then share sites, blogs, articles or websites around similar ideas or concepts. I said at the time that I liked this concept because it was such a visual interface and that it allowed the viewer to see the physical links between ideas. I found this one the other day and was impressed with the quality of the links.
When I graduated from OT school this past May, my Dad offered to buy me an iPad2 as a graduation gift. He thought that maybe I would be able to use it in my work with kids with special needs as I drove to and from clients' homes and saw them in the clinic. I decided it would be a good investment, so a few hours after I received my Master's degree in Occupational Therapy, we headed over to the Apple store and picked out my shiny new toy. In the months since that purchase, I've thought to myself that one of the many things I could do with the iPad is use it in therapy. Since we Pediatric Occupational Therapists often work with children with limitations in the areas of fine motor skills, problem solving, cognition, motor planning, handwriting, body awareness, self-care, feeding, sensory processing, and more; all of these areas can be addressed in part or whole through the use of the iPad.
