I think iPads for sixth grade are very helpful. When you need to do something, like go on a website for school, you can just get out your iPad and go to the website. There are many apps to help you get your work done. One of my favorite apps is calendar because I can write down my homework for the day. Some more apps that are helpful are Sketchbook x or Doodle Buddy because for blog posts and other things, if you need to draw a picture, you can use one of the apps. My favorite app is Evernote because you can take notes on it or your teachers can put something there and you can see it. I like the iPads and think they are a helpful way for sixth graders to learn.
In class we picked a wisdom tale to do a comic on. I picked A Flock of Birds. The picture to the left is my comic. While I was doing this project I learned how to us Comic Life, Doodle Buddy and Outlook email to put the pictures in the comic. At first I did not know what to do but because I did not know how to get the pictures in, but I used my my iPad to email the picture to myself. Then I went to Outlook on the computer to put them in my comic.
A Flock of Birds was the third tale we read. It was about a flock of birds that a hunter got the birds in a net. Then one day a wise bird said that if we flap our wings at the same time then the net will lift. So they tried it and it worked. Then one day the birds got in a disagreement with each other so they did not work together and the hunter got them.
