Text Support with Popplet

Popplet is a great app for showing knowledge visually.

Today we began reading Seeker of Knowledge from Reading Street (our reading textbook adoption). Our curriculum asked us to have the kids choose a hieroglyph from each page and explain the sentence from the text that provided more information about it. This was a great opportunity for us to use Popplet to showcase our learning instead of writing it on a piece of paper.

Here are a couple:

I was happy with the results. :) They had a time limit of 20 minutes to do this.

In our literature groups, the kids are reading Geronimo Stilton books. Have you seen them?

I have made QR codes with comprehension activities for the groups to do throughout the book. One of them was to create a Popplet:

This group is reading a different Stilton book.

What have you done with Popplet? I would love to hear your ideas.
