Thank you very much to Lisa Johnson, @TechChef4u, who shared 100+ App Task Cards and I quickly found Video Vocabulary. Oh yes a smashing success! Thank you Lisa, @TechChef4u, and Sandy Patterson, on Instagram @soaring_through_2nd, lesson and details at:
I made a few minor changes and included the files to share in this blog post.
A few planning tips:
1. Where do 2nd graders get cool images?
Give students choice to draw it, snap it or save it. Students might draw an image using the free Doodle Buddy app. Another idea is for students to take a picture of something in the classroom using the Camera app. And finally, searching for an image to save to their camera roll from a shared folder in Google Drive or posted on a class website. You might let students use a safe search engine like this one:http://www.wikikids.ws/
or this one that Sandy recommends:http://www.kidrex.org/
For the topic we chose, school pride, taking a few campus snapshots is fun. Then you can post the images on a class or school website or even Padlet.com (and Chrip the link to the students for easy access).
2. One Session or Two?
If your students already know the words you want them to write about this lesson will take 1 session (~30 minutes or so). Take two sessions if you need to teach the vocabulary.
3. The final product in this lesson can be each student recording all the words and creating their individual video or merging one sentence from each student for a video collage. Mrs. Barney's Class PRIDE video below is a video collage where each student contributed one sentence. In iMovie on an iPad, I merged the student videos and added text to the beginning and end for the video. Given more time even 2nd graders could add the text in iMovie.
