Software Evaluation

Kid Pix is a great drawing program that is useful for young children.  On this program, students are able to create pictures or graphic organizers.  Students may draw, paint, use rubber stamps, and insert text into their work.  This software may be used by an individual student or collaboratively and could be integrated into any subject matter.  Go to for a how-to of how to use the program.  You need the software to actually complete the activity, but this gives you an idea of what the software looks like.  There are many versions of Kid Pix including Kid Pix Studio Deluxe and Kid Pix Deluxe 4.  This software is kid friendly and includes such aspects as "Undo Guy", which has the typical features of the undo button.  Kid Pix is highly interactive and has a high degree of user control.  It can be used by students of many different learning abilities.  I would highly recommend using this software in the classroom.
