Writing made easy and fun!

I just want to share something awesome with you! I just had a visit from our RTLB (resource teacher, learning and behaviour, basically she is someone who helps with our special ed kids).

Anyway, she couldn't work with my lovely because he's away sick.  She was however RAVING about this new thing she found out about at another school before coming to me.  (I don't know how "new" it actually is, but it's the first time I've heard of it so hey!)

Me - So you wanna know what it is?
You - Duh, why else would I be here?
Me - I dunno, maybe you just wanna be my friend?
You - Again, duh.  No brainer.  But you gots ta gimme something girl!
Me - Woah totes will dude.

Okay sorry - I think I've been hanging out with my class too long.  HAHA

Anyway - It's Piclits  (Word of quick warning though, the first image that always comes up is of a bottle of beer.  You can't tell without using inference skills that that is what it is, but still (Actually I just read that the pictures change each day so should be good)).

The idea behind this site is that you get a picture and you put words on it...  Sounds simple right?  Totally is!
Check out one we did as a class.

You have two options when writing.  First choose a picture.  Then you can freestyle your writing - As in just type.  OR you can drag and drop!

EASY AS PIE!!!

Bonus things I like

  1. It works on the ipad (using safari)
  2. Gorgeous photos
  3. I haven't tested this (as I have apple tv, not a smart board), but they say on the site that it is smart board compatible
Go check it out!!  Let me know what you think  - I'd love to see your piclits!!
