This week we read a fable and annotated it in one of our favorite apps, Skitch! We have been working on close reading and using think marks to annotate. This of course is possible with paper, but using Skitch has made annotating a really fun process!
To do this, I first scanned the pages I wanted and downloaded them to my own ipad. Then I took a screen shot of each page. This created a picture file that I could write on in Skitch!
I downloaded these pictures to the classroom Dropbox account so that all of my students could see the pictures. Each page is separate, but since my students are working on close reading, they only really need one page at a time! To open a page in Skitch from Dropbox to annotate, click the blue box on the right at the top of the picture. Then click "Open in."
