Looking for a way for your early elementary students to make their stories come alive?
Try the PuppetMaster app for ipads.
Your students can use their drawings or photos as their puppet and background, or use existing ones that come with the app. They can bring their puppet to life by recording their voice, and either touching the screen or acting things out in front of the camera. What a fun and interactive way to encourage your students to tell their stories!
Make graphic organizer worksheets for your classroom. You can customize them with your own a name and instructions or use their default instructions.
