Have you heard of Snapguide? It may just be my new favorite app! And the best part is... it's FREE!
It's like Pinterest, BUT...instead of looking at the picture and thinking "how the heck did they do that?"- it is a step by step picture/video guide of how to. You can peruse the guides on your phone, tablet, or computer. And it is super easy to set up an account and get started.
My school is a bit behind. We just got iPads for the classroom during the last month of school. I'm now proud to report that I have 3 iPads for students use in my room. Before the school year ended, I wanted to play around with some of the apps I downloaded and get my feet wet. Snapguide was one of the first ones I tried and I loved it!!
My class was studying life cycles, specifically we were reviewing the butterfly lifecycle. By 4th grade this is a one day review because they already know it so well. (Thank goodness!!) I went to my Pinterest science board for inspiration and found this adorable pin from the wonderful Mrs. Lemons of Step into 2nd Grade. Thanks Amy!
I used Amy's model to create my own one sunny afternoon. After I completed each step, I quickly snapped a picture with my iPad and then created my first ever Snapguide. Check it out below...
