1st Grade Literacy and Technology

by Randy Ziegenfuss

Mrs. Dana Sugra, 1st Grade teacher at Harry S. Truman Elementary School, shared this recent project from her 1st graders.

In our first Storytown theme, we read a Big Book titled Go, Go, Go! Kids on the Move.  This book discussed different ways children can move.  We decided to make a personal connection with the book and create a Keynote Presentation of the ways we can move.  Each child had to think of a way he/she could move.  Using the software program Photo Booth on the laptop computers, students took pictures of each other moving in different ways.  Each student created his/her slide changing the background color, font, typing the sentence and doing a voice over.  This project is the students’ own work and is unedited by me.  We continue to work on keyboard functions, as well as on correct punctuation, mechanics, and spelling.  I hope you enjoy it!
