I’m getting a ton of new technology for next school year! YAY! 10 iPads and 7 Chromebooks…plus the 7 iPod touches I already have. So…I’m going to make my iPods into listening centers since we’ll have the iPads for apps.
My local library has a HUGE selection of FREE ebooks that you can download through the “Overdrive” app. You check them out digitally, and when they are due back to the library, they just disappear! No late fees when you forget your due date…not that I have experience paying enough library fines to build my own wing of the library…
I’m also working on uploading my books on CD so that they kids can sometimes use “real” books at listening center, but I love having access to a huge selection of ebooks for them to use, too!
While I’m getting my iPods organized for listening center, I decided I needed some cute wallpaper…and I wanted to share! I just love Graphics from the Pond and they have the perfect little iPod kids! 🙂
I think it’s easiest to just click on each image, then when it opens in the new page hold the image until the “save image” button appears.
Having numbers will help me easily account for each iPod at the end of the day and will keep them organized for charging. When we have actual books at listening center, it will also make it much easier to keep track of which iPod matches which book bin, because I’m putting the same labels on the bins.
You can also grab the PDF in my TpT store. This will be easier to print if you want to label bins or charging slots. 🙂
