1st Grade Literacy and Technology
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!
