Fun Firsts!

We are starting a new year and so we have created our first digital book about our school this year!  We read a story in one of our books about a school.  We decided to create our own version using the iPad.  First, we decided which places we needed to have in our book.   Then, we went around the school and took pictures with an iPad of the places in our school the children thought were important.  The Big Rock and Chester were key items on our list!

The next step was to take the pictures and import them into a neat app called Strip Designer that lets us add captions to our pictures.  We saved those pages to the camera roll and then imported them into another app called Explain Everything which lets us create a book!  We imported each page onto its own page in Explain Everything and then recorded our voices saying the words on each page.

After we finished recording, we saved our book as a movie.  Then we watched and listened to the book we created about our school.  We hope you enjoy it! You may recognize a voice or two!
