Stick Around is an amazing app that is beneficial for students as well as teachers. It is an app that can be used at any grade level and in all curriculuar areas! I have created puzzles in Math, Social Studies, and Spelling so far. In the Midwest puzzle below, I added links to each sticker. First the kids can solve the puzzle as a way to practice and review the states and capitals. When they click Check (upper right hand corner), the puzzle automatically corrects itself. The kids get instant feedback as to whether or not they solved it correctly! After they solve the puzzle, they can tap on the links I have added to each sticker to learn more about each state. There are so many possibilities within this one puzzle I created for my students.

Just as my students are able to access classmates' puzzles, as a teacher I am able to do the same with other educators. Brent Catlett set up a shared folder for teachers that have the Stick Around app. We are able to access various Stick Around puzzles and share those with our students! It is such a great way to collaborate, share, and be inspired by what others have created! Stick Around has a lot of potential within the classroom. Teachers and students can create puzzles with words, images, recordings, drawings, and links! Students are able to pick a way that best helps them demonstrate what they have learned. Visit my students' blogs to see puzzles they have created and to read more about our inspiring, fun, and fantastic hangout with Tony Vincent!
