We read Dream Snow by Eric Carle and then wrote three reasons why we like or do not like snow. We chose one reason and made a paper collage. I took a picture and then added a "blanket of snow" in the InstaCollage app.

ClassFlow is a free program where you can upload Promethean Board Flipcharts and each student can get that flipchart on their iPad. I uploaded word sorts so I can easily switch the sort for each group.
This is what it looks like on my laptop but you can also do it right from your Promethean board.
When you stop the session you can see each students flipchart on your teacher screen. I think the Teacher App lets you do it from another iPad.

I made edible sleighs for gifts this year. This version has a mini box of chocolate, 6 mini candy bars, 2 nuggets, 1 bell and a chocolate Santa on 2 candy canes.
This is a smaller version I made for student gifts. I was able to make 24 for about $15. It has 2 mini chocolate bars, 1 nugget, 1 bell, and 1 mini Santa on 2 candy canes. I just hot glued the pieces together.
This fun idea came from: Jak Heath
We went on a phonogram search in the books we were reading.
All you do is take a screenshot of the book page, open the Doodlcast app and choose that photo. The students can use the pen to circle the phonograms they know.
These are the book apps I use in my classroom.
