Plump Published Pumpkins
Our first published piece on the iPads are finished! Students created, wrote and then published an alliteration. Alliterations are sentences where the same sound is repeated at the beginning of words.
First we used pictionaries to help brainstorm words the start with the beginning sound in our names. We unscrambled funny alliterations on the Smartboard to help us understand that our alliterations must make sense! Students then wrote a sentence using their words to make their own alliterations. After our sentences were complete, students wrote them on sentences strips and made an adorable pumpkin to go along with it.
Wait, we weren't done yet. Next, we used the iPads and illustrated our pictures using one of our favorite apps educreations. Students even typed their sentences choosing their color, size and placement. As a class we recorded ourselves reading our sentences. Make sure to check out our final published piece above.
