Animals in Winter

Hi All!
It's been way too long since I've posted. Life has been a great way!
Just wanted to share a "new to me" web 2.0 tool that I just learned about called Little Bird Tales. Little Bird Tales is a super user-friendly story building tool. Students can create artwork via a drawing tool similar to KidPix or you can upload images of their artwork. Students can add their voices and text as needed. Word of Advice: The program doesn't work so well with Chrome, so I recommend using FireFox. I've had a blast playing with it and was able to put together this little video in about 5 minutes (minus the time it took to record the kiddos!).

Next week we're talking about Penguins. I can't wait to have them explore the drawing option and share the facts they have learned about penguins!
