Explain Everything

Although I like to recommend free apps, Explain Everything is one that I feel is well worth the money.  At $2.99, it allows students to explain their thinking as they are completing a variety of tasks.  As a former math teacher, I was good at having students complete problems on paper, but I didn’t have them EXPLAIN what they were doing.  Explain Everything is the perfect app to check for understanding as kids explain a process.

In the Fraction-Decimal-Percent Video, students are describing one method for converting a fraction to a decimal and percent.

I also had my 1st graders use Explain Everything.  They typed a few rhyming words, made a sentence and then illustrated it.
