  1. Hi Kaelyn! I also chose to do an activity on phonics and I think Jamboard really lends itself to word sorts because of how easy it is for students to manipulate. I like how you are using this as an exit ticket, which is a great way to assess student understanding. The photos you picked are great and I can see students really enjoying this activity!

  2. Hailey, a good idea for using jamboard to help the “Littles” (short vowel) with their phonics. Would be fun for students to manipulate the images as an efficient check for understanding. I might suggest that you create some defined spaces for each sound. Might be easier for students to clarify their intent.
