Four 4th grade students met with me during their recess to write the story "Just Another Ordinary Day at the Mansion". This is one of a few student created books in our "Just Another Ordinary Day" series. Students first brainstormed about their story ideas by surfing the many images withing the app. They selected backgrounds, characters and accessories and added text. Each student took turns manipulating the graphics and typing text.
This lesson teaches 21st century skills, as students must combine art, technology, and literacy skills while creating and writing.
