Look What These Kindergarteners Did with iPads

You all know the story If You Give a Cookie to a Mouse. Well, take a look at this Little Bird Tale to see what happens when you give kindergarteners an iPad. Click on the image to view the kindergarteners' story of what they accomplished with their iPads. Their story, "If You Give Kindergarteners an iPad," is both amusing and enlightening, and also reminds us of how given the technology tools and a teacher willing to integrate the tools well, what young children can accomplish. We can stretch their literacy skills as far as possible when we put the tools in their hands and plan our lesson well. This Little Bird Tale illustrates not only effective use of iPads, but also the value of using a tool such as Little Bird Tales for students to create their own books.


  1. What a great story! Thanks for sharing the tale and website. It seems like such a great way to engage young learners in technology!

  2. I not only liked the students reading their story, but loved hearing what the students did with the ipad. Sometimes I get stuck as to what apps I can use and what new things to assign to students on the ipad. I can also envision using the little birds to teach my students cause and effect using "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" and then showing that video as an example before we make our own. What a neat resource!
