Calling All App Smashers--Day #2 App Smash

Day two of our #appsmash4 challenge is here.  Again, there are lots of great app smashes coming in via the #appsmash4 hashtag and personal blog posts.  Thank you to all that are participating. You all are doing some amazing things with the technology that you have in your classrooms.  I appreciate what you are doing, and more importantly your students are loving it!  Thanks for being awesome!

One of the best parts of my job is working with the primary students in our district.  Their enthusiasm for learning is contagious.  If you are ever having a bad day I think you should take a stroll down to the Kindergarten classroom in your building.  Stay four about 15 minutes.  I guarantee that you will walk out smiling!   Be sure to also thank the Kindergarten teacher for being awesome before you leave. 

The App Smash recipe you see below was done with first graders and it is very easy to integrate.  @30hands is quickly becoming one of my "must have" apps.  It's very easy to use and has some great features.  We did this App Smash before Christmas and it entailed them telling what they like about Christmas and what they were wanting for Christmas.  We created our products in Pic Collage and Doodlebuddy, then dumped them into the 30 Hands app to record their voices over their products.  I didn't add the YouTube logo below, but you could upload your completed iMovies to YouTube, then use the Bulk QR Code Generator to create QR codes for all of the videos.  Students love to take these home or you can affix them to a physical product that they have created.
