Today my student teacher and I used the smart slate with the first graders. We chatted about appropriate rules needed like how to replace the pen in the holder, how to pass it (with 2 hands) and how to pass it from person to person. We used the Hundreds Chart activity I posted about earlier. It was a hit! Wow, it was interesting watching the students' thinking going on as they determined where numbers should be on the grid and worked with the Smart Slate! We decided that we'd set it up as a continuing station each morning after students finish their morning work.
