In our classroom, the Heads Up! app is played when they are finished with their vocabulary rotation. I keep one of our iPhones in the magnetic folder so they can have easy access to it. This is such a HUGE incentive for them to get their work done!
Now, how do I make it educational?
Well, once you buy the app ($0.99 well worth every penny), you can buy an in app purchase to be able to have an EDITABLE deck to add and delete whichever words you want to use! Now, it does cost $0.99 for the additional deck; however, I was able to have that deck on all of the iPhones in the room without buying it more than once! HURRAY!! :)
Each week, I add our vocabulary words for reading and any other words we are working on that week. Since we create motions to go with our words we are learning, the kids use their actions along with words as clues for their classmates. We go over the voice level expectation and where they can stand to play it as well. They LOVE IT!!!!!! It's such a great way to make practice fun!!
