Using Wixie to Build Literacy in Elementary Grades
How to use Wixie's tools and curriculum library to support your emerging readers, writers, and speakers.
Use these examples of projects created by students to inspire technology integration in your classroom literacy program.
Creative use of technology can engage students, and help you integrate your iPads, PCs, or Chromebooks into the curriculum.
These multimedia projects were created by students using Wixie.
Students create a new cover for a book to show comprehension and explore character, plot, setting, symbolism, and conflict.
To show what they know about a character in a novel you are reading, students create a digital scrapbook for this person.
Students can personify an object and write a story as part of an online book or animated adventure.
Students respond to a book they are reading, such as Grandpa's Stories by Langston Hughes.
Students create their own adaptations of literature they are reading.
Students create visual poetry by combining images that portray the meaning of text.
@Jennife20928054 Fourth graders used Wixie to create their own library books for others to read. They included a table of contents and cited their sources in a bibliography. Great way for them to be Communicators and Contributors! ?? @HorizonElem pic.twitter.com/6eekyJaXJX— Miss Staples (@HRZIFT) February 15, 2023
We are having a #pbl celebration. We’ve been working hard to create nonfiction “All About…” books in Wixie! We are taking turns presenting to classmates and taking notes on wow facts between 2nd grade classrooms. @FcpsPOGPOL #iteachwriting #iteach2nd pic.twitter.com/EDZXYY3Obi— Amy Stohs (@aestohs) December 14, 2022

My kiddos love all the fun features of Wixie and I love seeing how creative they can be! #firstgrade #wildcatproud #wixie @HumbleISD @HumbleISD_LLE @LakelandMakers @Tech4Learning ???????? pic.twitter.com/WHY80HRPHE— Leah Bergman (@MrsBergman93) September 30, 2022
My kiddos showed they knew “Knuffle Bunny Too” was a realistic fiction text by recreating a scene on #Wixie from the story. They chose a real setting and drew the characters on top just like @MoWillems!!! #firstgrade @HumbleISD @HumbleISD_LLE @Tech4Learning @carolynkdaly ?????? pic.twitter.com/IiOHvkGRRB— Leah Bergman (@MrsBergman93) November 2, 2022
