Prior to using the app, I taught a 30-45 minute guided discovery with each class. Below is an example of a kindergarten student who created a book in about 2, 30 minute sessions...one being the guided discovery that I did with his class and the other during an indoor recess time! Imagine that...students choosing to write/create during recess!
What I thought was even cooler...was how he incorporated 2 additional apps to create and edit his pictures. First, he added pictures from his camera roll. Next, he created the rainy/rainbow pictures using the CHALK_BOARD app. Then, he took screen shots of his drawings. Finally, he used the PS Express app to rotate the rainy/rainbow pictures...saved them and then inserted into his final page...pretty amazing for a kindergartener!
The icing on the cake...seeing his reaction when he shared his book to me via email and then iBooks...now, that was priceless!
...have I mentioned lately just how much I LOVE what I do!
(I am sure that all the elementary teachers out there can translate his writing. For everyone else...see the captions)
