These are hilarious!  Try the app Chatterpix Kids.  Take a picture of something, draw a line with your finger on the iPad where your photo will talk, and record yourself speaking for up to 30 seconds. Export to camera roll to share. That’s it!

Here’s an example of a first grader using the app during Daily 5. She is finding inferences.

Any ideas on how you would use with your class??
