Three 5th grade students met with me today during my prep time and their recess to write the story "Just Another Ordinary Day at the Toilet Park". This is one of a few student created books in our "Just Another Ordinary Day" series. Students first brainstormed about their story ideas, then they took a camera to various locations within our school to take photos that would support their story. Using the app, "Story Patch" on our iPad, students combined their photos with characters and accessories within the app. Each student took turns manipulating the graphics and typing text.
Each of these boys were begging for more learning and writing opportunities and were hoping they could download the app at home so that they could take more photos, write stories, and work with more graphics.
