Monster Cakes

How about a yummy fun way to introduce colours? Can you find all the monsters in this game?

Choice and combinations thrown in to create many options – that’s how I created the monsters and structured this new TinyTap game.

The illustrations were created using Vectornator Pro.

Permutations and combinations. Still hoping to create a “Choose your adventure” story.

Creative Colours (with Voices too)

What a colourful journey with a group of budding young artists in a primary school!

We looked at the colour wheel, cut and pasted to create collage inspired by HollyCollage and Eric Carle, and portraits inspired by Modigliani and Frida Kahlo.

With the visuals done, the girls added their voices to their artwork using TinyTap.  Hear them here: http://www.tinytap.it/activities/g2vwu/play/creative-colours.

This is a wonderful example of how TinyTap could be used for a personalised portfolio. An ebook about similar uses of TinyTap as well as a compilation of the lesson plans used for this are in the works. Keep an eye out for them.

Tropical Fruits

An interesting way to learn how to spell the names of some tropical fruits.

Are some of these too unfamiliar to those who are not in tropical Asia?

All the same, it was fun putting this together. Illustrations were created using Procreate on the iPad.

Peranakan Porcelain

Peranakan Porcelain are distinctive and beautiful, and lately they have attracted the attention of many collectors. These were made in China exclusively for the Peranakan community in South-east Asia and so have colours and designs that are unique.

So, it is such a delight to have Baba Richard create this simple introduction to Peranakan Porcelain using TinyTap.

The game is found here: http://www.tinytap.it/activities/g2r6h/peranakan-porcelain

Seniors have much knowledge and experience to share from and TinyTap is one very good platform to help them capture and share this. If you are keen to know more, please do not hesitate to contact us at pauseability@gmail.com.
