Palms: a HANDy Way to Learn!

Delmar students are using Palm handhelds in many ways at Delmar Elementary. Mrs. Weeg's computer lab students and Gen Y students made their own eBooks. They began their eBook stories in Kidspiration and then brought their text into eBook Studio. They illustrated their stories using Windows Paint. Our students are also using Palms for math and other language arts activities.

Delmar students are using iKWL as they read about new topics. Delmar students are using Cells as they explore probability.
