Technology in the Classroom: Charades App

Charades in the classroom! Technology digital learning
Hey, Friends! 
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted some {tech tips}! I have been super busy doing the whole ‘netflix and chill’ thing ๐Ÿ˜‰ Why lie? I’ve been relaxing in my pajamas for too long! Sometimes we need to just sit and rejuvenate. But I’m back at it so let’s get started! 
Have you ever played the Ellen D iPhone app, “charades?”. If you haven’t go download it now! It’s such a fun way to pass time with friends 
The image on the left is the adult version, the image on the right is for kids.

The game works just like Heads Up works.
Kids are given a custom deck and player 1 places it on their forehead.
Player two gives clues to help player 1 guess the word.
If player 1 guesses correctly they tilt their head down for a point.
They can pass by tilting their head up.
How can can you use this in your classroom?
Here are some examples:

An email will pop up that says, ” Check out my Custom Deck” along with an number.
Copy this number. This is what the kids will need to access the deck that you made.
