I am excited to link up with the adorable Katie King for a “tech tip”!
As you may know from my previous post, we are studying penguins right now. I found this app called Spelling with Cimo at the itunes store and it has been a HUGE HIT!
The goal is to spell a word correctly to get Cimo across the ice to his fish.
Students choose a snowflake level
Next, they are given a word to spell and some letters to use. (There are wrong ones in there too)
They move the icebergs up to build a bridge for the penguin
As they penguin walks it spells the word. If a letter is wrong the penguin will fall through into the water!
If it is right, the penguin with eat a fish on the other side while the student hears and sees the word again.
Then the next word is called out to spell for the penguin.

That looks like a cute game! Being surrounded by iPads in the class the last 2 days makes me amazed about how easy it is to integrate it in to the class and now I can't see teaching without it lol.

We LOVE the Cimo app in our classroom! I love that the app advances them to the next level once they have gotten so many correct. Simple and FUN!

What a cute spelling freebie! My students love the Cimo Spelling app and this looks like a fun group game for them! My husband bought a new iPad and let me have his old one to use at school. This has really motivated my students to work and behave to earn iPad time!
