The following post was originally featured on the Fox Hill Elementary School Library Media Center blog. BPS EdTech Team member and Fox Hill School Librarian Patrick Murphy recently introduced second graders to BrainPop Jr. using the iPads from their 1:1 learning program.
This week in second grade we had our introduction to BrainPop Jr. BrainPop Jr. features animated movies about a wide variety of topics including math, science, social studies, history, and ELA. Now that second graders have their own iPads, we logged in for full access to all their great movies. Students got to spend some time simply exploring and worked together to find movies and share where they went in the menu to find certain things. Kids also got the chance to be the teacher and explain the fun things they found in the app so we could all learn!
