Feed the Fish - 1st Grade Math from Heather Reinbrecht
By Heather Reinbrecht
This VoiceThread is a great example of using technology to get children interested in a math lesson.
After deciding on a topic, I created a Powerpoint that I felt was appropriate and then worked on adding the voice to it. After combining all the areas there were a few adjustments to be made.
I wanted to find a way to incorporate something like this for the younger children who I will be working with.
VoiceThread is a lot easier to use than I expected. I think it is a great way to incorporate technology into your classroom and will be beneficial to you and your students. I would use my activity to introduce the concept to the children but then go into much greater detail and explanation. The purpose of it was to catch their attention and get them excited about learning math.
