Can’t Hold Them Back!

As my Deputyhead said, she wished everyone could have seen the excitement on the faces of my two guest bloggers, Lee and Freddie, as they watched their Werewolf Story on the big screen (well…on the Interactive Whiteboard) for the first time!

They kept looking at each other with the biggest grins; it was truly one of ‘THOSE‘ teaching moments. And when I read them the comments that were left for them, they gave up trying to sit in their seats and jumped up and down!

A HUGE, HUGE, HUGE thank you to everyone who took the time to comment.

For both of these boys to have told their Werewolf story through traditional ways might have been a bit like this for them: 

but instead by using a little technology it was a bit more like this:

Today Freddie and Lee ‘wrote’ their second story. For this story the boys drew the pictures first and added the narration afterwards. Freddie is telling the story and if you listen closely you can might hear some of the sound effects Lee is creating.

We hope you like it as much as the first one.

    By the way, I intend to show your stories to my Gr. 7/8 class here in Canada this week. I think they need a reminder of how exciting creating and communication one’s ideas can be! I intend for us to leave a comment here as a class so check back! I will send your teacher a tweet to let you know! 🙂

    Thank you all you lot for reading me and Lee’s story. We will make a new story up soon. I think it will be called “The People Trying to Get Away From the Black Hole”
    The Black hole will go into people’s houses and eat them!
    Bye for now

    That sounds very scary indeed Freddie! Very good job on the Aliens come to Earth story you wrote and illustrated. I enjoyed watching the video. I could really sense the enthusiasm in your voice, this will interest your audience. Keep up the amazing story-telling. I think you are doing an awesome job!
