These are examples of oral storytelling using VoiceThread on the iPad. As part of the Grade 1's unit called Tell Me a Story (How We Express Ourselves) students spent time engaging with stories told in many different ways and styles. They learned about the elements of a story and ways to make their stories interesting to readers.
They then applied the knowledge they gained about story telling to make their own piece using pictures. The students then had a chance to rehearse their stories to their Grade 5 reading buddies and received feedback about their expression etc. Following that, students used the iPad and the VoiceThread app to take pictures of their stories and record their voice telling the story.
