Assessment Strategies

### Assessment Strategies

Students will share their finished videos with their classmates and practice counting to 100 by tens and counting to 20 by ones out loud with the class.

### Variation Tips

If there are enough iPads in the class this activity could be done on an individual basis and each student could create their own video.

This app could also be used in any subject area.
