For our final Global Read Aloud project, 1st graders illustrated a character from our beloved Marty McGuire book. Students used the iPads as a digital tool to create these detailed illustrations. Once illustrations were complete, students thought of adjectives to describe their character. Check out our final project created with a new app animoto.
After our animoto video was complete, we tweeted it out to Kate Messner, the author of Marty McGuire. Kate Messner then posted and tweeted about our wonderful artwork! Check out her tweet:
After viewing Kate's blog and watching her author videos, we were ecstatic that she acknowledged our hard work. Twitter might be one of our new favorite things!
