HUE Animation Studio
New York City teacher Becky Dingsor-Forero says this is “an artistic way to bring tech into the classroom.” Her fourth graders love “using the camera to film and the software to animate and edit it.”
“Kids can recreate a scene from a favorite book or design images of historical events using the scene and character tools,” says grades 4–5 teacher Jason Kline of Salem, Oregon. “There’s so much for every subject and grade level.” The subscription-based platform includes templates and a lesson plan library.
Kline loves using this game to engage individual kids and small groups in STEM. “Circuit Maze lets them see different ways they can build a circuit and challenge themselves through scaffolded levels of difficulty.”
This easy-to-use wax-melting pen gives art projects a boost with bold colors and defined lines. Leann Parrish, a K–6 reading and math specialist in Cayuga, Indiana, says it “works like a hot-glue gun but melts colors onto a multitude of surfaces.”
Marbotic Smart Kit
Ronda Goo, a kindergarten teacher in Honolulu, says students loved this multisensory approach to learning early reading and math skills. Bonus: The wooden letters and numbers have a scratch-free coating to help protect your iPad!
