We are reading a lot of fairy tales at the moment. With the iPads I am able to have all students read a fairy tale, such as The Three Little Pigs, but I can easily differentiate by having different versions of the story with different levels of vocabulary difficulty. Students can also listen if necessary.
Following The Three Little Pigs reading groups of 3-4 students were given either strip of paper (straw), straws (sticks), or unifix cubes (bricks) and asked to create a house for the pigs. As part of the process I asked each student to use the My Story app to reflect about 2 ways they helped their group and 1 way they could improve in the future.
