Counting Book Fun!

This is one of the counting books that one of our students finished making today!  The children have been using the My Story app to create simple counting books!  This app is a very versatile app!  The children can use a variety of mediums to create their books.  For this project the children used the stamps within the app to create a simple count-up book!  The children had to choose the image, learn how to copy it as many times as needed for each page, add the appropriate text, and then record their text for each page!

It sounds pretty simple but please remember that we are only in Grade One!  That’s a lot of steps! Creating the book, adding pages, adding images, and then copying them as needed, adding text including the correct spelling and punctuation, and then finally recording them is really quite impressive!  All by themselves!

When the children finished their stories, I had them record their sentences in our “recording booth”!  It is a quieter spot to allow their voices to shine!  We still get a bit of background noise but it is helpful noise!

I love this app because you can save the book as a movie, which lets me share it with you!  I can upload the movie to our Youtube channel and then put the link to the movie on this page for you to view!

Here is another one!

They were so focused!

Hope you enjoy them viewing them as much as we enjoyed making them!  Too much fun!
