Digital Stories

Students in Grades 3-5 have created digital stories using Microsoft Photostory software. This week, students in Ms. Randi and Ms. Saldivar completed their stories. To create digital stories, students first wrote personal narratives, next they drew pictures depicting various scenes of their stories. The pictures were then scanned and imported into Photostory. Students then added narration and created their own music to go along with their stories.

I Have A Dream Projects

Students in Grade 1 created "I Have A Dream" projects. To create the projects, students drew a self-portrait using Tux Paint. Next they imported their pictures into Powerpoint and added the text of their dream. Through this project, students gained skills in opening files, computerized drawing, saving files, typing text, importing a picture into Powerpoint and more!
