Trial with ScreenChomp App

Please remember these are just quick samples I created to try the product.  These are by no means a finished product.
There is lots of background noise on this one because the TV was on when I made this first sample.

I took a picture of a handwriting card I have in my classroom  (the picture can be taken inside the app.)and created this (trial) video for the student to listen to first and then they would go practice this by themselves.  I think I will do this at the beginning of the year.  My new first graders come in writing most of thier letters incorrectly. This would be a simple reteach starting the first week I get workstations up and running!  Just thinking about this idea.
(Opps, the "p" got cut off in ape.)
