Mother's Day Videos

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


  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! You can use paper or any iPad app you like to create art with.


Today we'll tell our Tell your story using iMovie!
  1. Using an iPad, take pictures of your drawings (if you drew on paper).
  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. Add a title image (maybe a picture of some flowers?) and a closing image (maybe a picture of you?).


In iMovie, click the Share button, then Email. Send it to your Mom!
