Bring Creative Digital Projects to First-Grade Classrooms!

Use these examples of projects created by students and tweets from classroom teachers to inspire technology integration in your first-grade classroom.

Whether you have Chromebooks, iPads, PCs, or Macs in your classroom, you can use technology to engage and inspire your students in the curriculum.

These technology projects were created by students using Wixie.

"Wixie is like a blank canvas, full of possibilities! This platform can easily be navigated by our youngest learners, who creatively demonstrate their learning through text, art, voice, and video. Wixie can be used in any content area from math to language arts and allows our teacher to to differentiate assignments and add in scaffolds like oral directions."

Built-in activities for essential math foundations

Wixie's Templates library includes over 60 first-grade math activities you can use for formative assessment purposes or tasks for student work at centers and in station rotations.


Literature Adaptation

Share a story with a repeating pattern like Mary Wore Her Red Dress. Then, have each student recreate a page with the same pattern. Combine the student projects into a class book.


Writing Story Problems

Have students illustrate an addition or subtraction story and record an explaination of the problem. Collect the student projects into a class book and solve all the problems together.


Reading and Writing Informational Texts

Have students create their own informational text including headings, a table of contents, captions, and labeling to find information. Publish their work as a great collection of nonfiction at just the right reading level for your students.


Favorite Relative

Have students write a simple story about a family member or friend. Have them record their voice and share on Mother's Day, Father's Day, or even Valentine's Day.
