Sharing is Caring: Digital Storybooks

This term I've been trying some new ways of doing writing. To make things interesting for my students and to give them a chance to see different ways to use writing. One of the things I did was have them make digital storybooks, using Google Slides.

I have a lot of Lego in my classroom and I've seen it used to tell stories before (and I've seen my students make up stories when they're building/playing with the Lego), so I thought, why not make some stories using the Lego.

I made a sample, which is included below and several of my students have made their own stories. It took a while to get what they have (about 3 weeks of our writing time - mostly spent on building sets).  We used SOLO to make a rubric to evaluate our stories. Find all of this below:

  2. I am very impressed by the amount that your students are writing! Great texts! Do you have ipads? I'm trying out Book Creator app next week.
