Use these examples of projects created by students and tweets from classroom teachers to inspire technology integration in your first-grade classroom.
These multimedia projects were created by students using Wixie.
Share a story with a repeating pattern like Mary Wore Her Red Dress. Then, have each student recreate a page with the same pattern. Combine the student projects into a class book.
Have students illustrate an addition or subtraction story and record an explaination of the problem. Collect the student projects into a class book and solve all the problems together.
Have students create their own informational text including headings, a table of contents, captions, and labeling to find information. Publish their work as a great collection of nonfiction at just the right reading level for your students.
Have students write a simple story about a family member or friend. Have them record their voice and share on Mother's Day, Father's Day, or even Valentine's Day.
First graders used the symmetry tool in Wixie to create an insect. Then they used the insect to tell a short story. Here are a couple pages from their stories. @visualartsbcps @Edgemere_BCPS @Tech4Learning pic.twitter.com/DLqFM98Prb— Greg Flach (@Mountaineer94) March 23, 2018
Gr1 read “The Invisible Boy”, discussed theme, and used #wixie to show their evidence. We learned a new Wixie feature today: speech bubbles! @DianeAdamson6 @KeriKenison @DrShewbridge @Tech4Learning pic.twitter.com/AmhE6y5nYg— Erin Nye (@enye001) March 27, 2018
Gr1 used #wixie to show character traits from “Ada Twist, Scientist”. They loved being able to draw AND record their voices to show the trait they chose. @DrShewbridge @KeriKenison @Tech4Learning pic.twitter.com/dRKTZN5PYp— Erin Nye (@enye001) March 22, 2018
