The welcome banners are up, the class tablets are charged, and soon your new students will walk into class for the first time. The start of a new school year is full of excitement and opportunity, and a great time to get students geared up for the milestones ahead.

 

Here’s how to use TinyTap to create a smooth transition for the start of the school year:

 

Introduce students to their new faculty and school:

Ease back to school anxiety by introducing students to teachers and familiarizing them with their classrooms and school buildings. See how trusted teacher, Evelyn Chaleki, created a welcome guide for students entering Kindergarten at her school.

 

 

Here are a great tips to follow for creating a welcome guide:

  • Include photographs of the class’ teachers, librarian, music teacher, and principal with a personalized greeting from each facility member the student will interact with.
  • Add a sound board activity with the school layout, and explain what students will do in the library, lunch room, gym and more.

 

Teacher

 

Create a class directory activity:

Ice breaker activities are great to create class relationships and encourage students to feel comfortable with their new teachers and classmates. Create an activity that introduces each child while enforcing a concept the class is learning.

  • Learn the alphabet while getting to know classmates: Organize an alphabet game using student’s names.
  • Practice presentation and research skills: Students can introduce themselves in a video and share a brief biography of a historical figure they admire, or facts on their favorite animal.

Connect with Parents:

Invite parents to join your class group to share class assignments. Parents will receive a notification when activities are assigned, so they know what their children are learning in school, and can work with them at home to meet goals.

 

Parents will also receive a weekly report showing their child’s progress. Encourage parents to continue working with their learners at home by sending home the Parent Handout. Students can scan into their accounts with their personal QR codes, and complete assignments at home.

Introducing Houdini Images

Reveal your lesson’s full potential with TinyTap’s Houdini Images

Teach complex topics and master new concepts with responsive images. TinyTap’s newest tool offers creators a way to add images and gifs that appear, disappear, move, or sound upon tap.

 

Many topics and concepts are hard for learners to understand through static images. Creators can now add interactivity that enables learners to delve deeper by discovering layers, flipping through flashcards for more information, and watching a process unravel on their screen.

 

Add a touch of magic to your lessons with Houdini:

 

Teach complex concepts in stages: Reveal the inner workings of layered objects. Instead of showing several diagrams of the human body, or layers of a planet,  delve deeper by tapping by peeling through the layers for details.

 

Houdini-Human-Body-karin3

Create digital flashcards: Master new material with flashcards that hide and reveal correct answers. Students can create their own test-prep materials and quiz themselves.

 

Houdini-Animal-karin4

Reveal multi stage processes: Provide step-by-step details for processes and cycles. For example, instead of showing a life cycle, students can progress through the steps by tapping to unveil information.

 

Houdini-Frog-karin4

Reinforce early math skills: Build confidence with activities that empower students to learn to count by tapping away images and uncovering the solution underneath.

 

Houdini-Magician-karin

You can add 9 interactivity options with Houdini:
