Top Toddler Apps; Middle School Computer Lessons

I am constantly working with my 3-year-old son on the usual pre-K stuff like colors, counting, and learning the alphabet. I find the Ipad is a useful tool for him to learn these things. Before, he was using an Ipod touch, now he has began using “Daddy’s Big Ipod” at home. The Ipod touch is still very useful in small doses when we are in a store or in the car. Small doses is the key! When I first started him on the Touch, it was like a drug, I could not get it off of him. I quickly learned that 10 minutes here and there was the best way to for him to get the most out of the experience. The first time he used it, he was hooked for about 45 minutes and when I told him that it was time to put it away, he had a total meltdown. Which is unusual for him.

When I search for apps to add to my Ipad for him, I usually look for certain things. First, I want “Learning” apps, not games. Angry Birds is a no, Monkey Lunchbox=yes.

Here are some of the apps that I find to be our favorite. I would love to hear yours!

1. Monkey Preschool Lunchbox

2. Tozzle-Toddlers First puzzle It is great!

3. Wheels On the Bus– Use your own voice to enhance this app

4. Team Umizoomi- an assortment of learning games

5. Handy Manny; Flickers Flash card Fiesta

6. Baby Apps; All in One

7. Magic piano –Music; Play a song on the piano (a 3-year-old can do it)

8. Youtube– Find alphabet songs, Seseme Street songs…Black Eyed Peas  are a big hit in my house

9. Alphabet Song – Oscar’s Apps-sings as you tap

Merit Pay in Ohio? 3 thoughts for Computer Class.

Click here for the best Middle School Computer Lessons on the Web!

With the passage of SB5 in Ohio, as a teacher who does not teach a “Core”subject, I am curious how I will fit into the Merit-Pay discussion. First, I would like to begin by saying that I think Merit-Pay is not a well thought out  idea. What is it based on in the first place? Passing some “achievement” test? One test determines how well a school is doing? It seems poorly planned. If teachers’ pay is going to be determined on some test, the test is all that is going to be taught. Is that what school is all about? I would not want my child to go to a school where the entire focus is on passing a test. As a parent, honestly I really don’t care about passing one state test over getting a well-rounded public school education that includes much more than test prep.

With that being said, and the “Merit-Pay” reality looming at this point (unless the voters kill SB5 in the future) how will schools implement this? If it is going to happen I have 3 thoughts.

#1 What determines which teachers get which students? How about a “school-yard pick ’em” situation? Teachers stand on one side of the gym, students on the other and the teachers take turns picking. Like a fantasy football draft. Wouldn’t that be fair to the teachers? They choose the kids that they will get credit for? Not really stand them in the gym, but seriously have a draft. Is that wrong?

#2 How will “Specials” fit in? Maybe have Teams for each concentration area? Like  Math team, Social Studies team, a science team. Each “special”  teacher could be part of one team; share and contribute to their success.

#3 Will the “Best” teachers get the “Best” students? Could we go with old test scores to make sure the lowest achieving students will go to the “Best” teachers? Who are the “Best” teachers anyways?

I seem to have more questions than answers. I would live to hear your ideas and comments.
