Welcome to the Basic Skills iPad Initiative

at Central Park Elementary School

BSI Math - The students are enjoying practicing their addition and subtraction facts using the ' Rocket Math' app. The students enjoy practicing the facts while collecting 'money' to build their own rocketship. Once they have answered enough questions correctly, they create a rocket and launch it into space.
- We have also used the 'Chalkboard' app in place of wipe-off boards. The students are very excited about any chance they get to work with the Ipads! It we have extra time, we log into IXL for some extra practice!
BSI Language Arts - When time allows, we sharpen our phonics skills with 'Chicktionary'. The app allows students to make words from a selected number of letters. The graphics are amusing to the students. Practicing vowel sounds and vowel variants is top on the list!
