Fourth Grade Digital Stories

Ms. Kaplan and I have been working with the fourth graders on creating a digital story using Voice Thread. It is a web based program that students use to record their stories to pictures that they created in Paint or downloaded from the Internet. The stories are cute, funny, smart, and interesting.

Dear Parents,

First graders have been working hard to create stories in their classroom with their teacher. As a fun way to share these stories we have created a Podcast. I have included the link from our website for you to enjoy their first Podcast. Click on a name, turn up the volume, and enjoy!

In case you are not familiar with the term podcast: (A podcast is a series of digital media files (audio files) that are downloaded to a web based server and shared through the web).
