We're going to make a movie on our iPads as a Mother's Day thank you.  Here's how:

Day 1

  1. Think of a time when your mom did something great for you. Write out your story like this:
    • Thanks Mom for ...
    • I remember that ...
    • It was a really special day/really fun/I really appreciate it!
    • Thanks for that and everything else you do! Love, ...
  2. Draw three pictures to illustrate your story!

Day 2

Today we'll tell our Tell your story using iMovie!
  1. Using an iPad, take pictures of your drawings.
  2. Open the iMovie app on your iPad
  3. Add the pictures you drew to the video project.
  4. Go to the beginning and record a new voiceover
  5. Read your story out loud. You can go 1 sentence at a time if you need to pause to think about what you want to say next.
  6. Export your story to email and send it to your mom!
Students who are waiting to record can try out these Wacky Web Tales!

As you might guess, this is a lot for 1st graders!  While we handled Day 1 on our own, we had some help from the class of 2015 on Day 2.
