iPad Lesson Plans for Preschool and Kindergarten:

Speaking and Predicting with DuckieDeck Collection App!

Are you interested in teaching your Preschool child or Kindergarten child how to use the iPad to develop Speaking and Predicting skills?  Well if you are then this lesson is for you!

It is very important for Preschool and Kindergarten kids to feel successful at school because it sets the stage for years of learning in the education system.  I  have a four-year-old son and he is very active with how he learns.  He is a hands-on type of kid and he likes to learn how things work.  My Ipad Lesson Plans for Preschool and Kindergarten: Speaking and Predicting with DuckieDeck Collection App and video tutorial on will to introduce your child to the world of Speaking and Predicting.  james2PicsArt_1367686578474This lesson shows step-by-step how to ask your child questions to engage in developing Speaking skills, but also Predicting skills. I have created a lesson plan for Preschool and a lesson plan for Kindergarten, but both are very similar.  The difference is the Preschool lesson focuses on the individual student and the Kindergarten lesson focuses on the individual and group lesson.

This lesson also incorporates DuckieDeck Collection:  Educational Games for Toddlers!, which is a wonderful app from DuckieDeck catered to the younger user and is a user-friendly lesson for those new iPad educators.  DuckieDeck Collection:  Educational Games for Toddlers! is only available through Apple, however feel free to adapt this to any app either through Android or Apple.  Below you can find the video tutorial hyperlink and the hyperlink to buy and look at the review of DuckieDeck Collection:  Educational Games for Toddlers!

Enhancement

Once the teacher feels comfortable allow students to draw one of the activities in a journal – such as a top hat, and then ask a partner to predict what could be in the hat.  The student then draws a picture in the hat – either the one that was predicted or another item.  They can try to describe what they did in the activity, such as “I saw a hat”.  Also, incorporate prediction into other areas of the classroom, such as reading stories.
