Digital Storytelling in 1st Grade

My students need an iPad to record their digital stories to create engaging writing stories.

My Students

I am eager to get an iPad for my students to create their own digital stories. My classroom goal each year is to create learners who can be independent thinkers, and become kind, productive, and knowledgeable 21st-century citizens in the real world.

My students walk in each day excited, overjoyed, and most importantly feel safe in my classroom.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds, from low-income families to wealthy families, single-parent homes vs. a family with two parents, and the list goes on and on however; my students know when they walk through my door we are all a family, and we will respect and love each other no matter our differences.

My Project

My students love to record themselves reading their writing. I am hoping to get an iPad for my classroom for them to be able to record themselves after they have written a story. The students love using the iPad to draw and record their writing and I would love to have one dedicated to them every day!

I want to encourage my students to improve their writing and reading skills.

Having them recording themselves will be engaging and also will be reflective of them to self-monitor their work. They can practice their reading fluency while also monitoring their writing skills.
