Students in Year 5 have been writing their own storybooks. As a part of this process some students were given the opportunity to recreate the story (or part of a story) using modeling clay and animation techniques.
The first version of Milo and Tom is below.
In the next session the students will have a chance to add sound to the animation.
Stay tuned for more to come
Year 2 have been looking at maps and understanding directions and procedural language for their Unit of Inquiry.

Year 1 have been inquirying into stories and storytellling.
The central idea is:

So far we have experimented with the following apps
See below for some examples for the stories.
StoryKit – click on the audio icon to hear the students reading their story aloud.

My Story – Book Maker for Kids
My Story app
The Pixn Tell app allows you to design your story and then publish it. Once published it is created into an audio file (MP4).
There are so many fantastic tools for creating digital stories.
Some of my other resources about teaching this can be found at my diggo digital storytelling links and Online Stories page at my JSSALC wikispaces.
