So this year, I am adding the Amazon Echo Dot to the classroom. This will be a great way for my students to take ownership over their learning. The Echo Dot will be used within our classroom and stations.
Technology expectations are written in the Texas Pre-K guidelines for young children. As a TEXAS educator, it is imperative to include technology lessons within our currciulum.
Here are just a few ideas on how we will be using this technology device to enhance our learning:
Ideas/Commands for use in a variety of content areas: MATH:
count to 10, 20, etc... count by 5's
set a timer (this will be great for fluency word work)
what is ____+_____?
how far is ____ (city) from ____ (city)?
roll the dice
tell me a story (most of the stories are fairytales, folktales- all kid friendly)
Simon Says (students must be able to read fluently for Alexa to understand the commands)
