We are performing Homeward Bound by Marta Keen. I asked students to partner up and use the iPad to create an ebook based on the song. I asked them to do the following:
- Choose the app (Book Creator, Scribble Press, My Story) that would work best for them. Each app has slightly different capabilities.
- Either take write the lyrics verbatim or "tell a story" with the same meaning.
- Write it for 1st graders.
- Be able to share it and turn it in on time.
I spoke for a moment about music standards; that we connect with art and literature. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the books. These sessions are sometimes challenging as I have a group of students who just. can't. work. independently.
You can create on the iPad.
