Wow. I’m very disappointed.

At first, I thought this would be more convenient than the website, and it sort of is, except they didn’t put the other effects in. So please work on that, Thinglink.

I thought this app was great for linking a worksheet for my students and then using pictures to help them if they didn’t understand what the word was. For example I did a common noun workbook page and it had a lot of different common nouns on the page- I linked a picture of flowers to the word flowers. Since my students are on all different reading levels I think this can be beneficial when completing homework and not having support at home.

I really enjoyed this app! It’s a fun and engaging way for students to interact with a photo. You’re able to embed music, pictures and text within any image. I used this to create an interactive map activity for students who live in nyc. Students are able to click on each link to see images and read information about each borough in NYC.
