Mrs. Kathy Poe’s 7th graders worked on podcasts of stories by SE Schlosser from American Folklore. Ms. Schlosser allows the use her stories if she is given credit. This project allows students to focus on the production of a podcast using Garageband to record a story, add music and sound effects, edit the audio and give attribution to the source of our story, music and other sounds.

What students thought about this project:
It helped me with my reading skills because I could listen to myself. CM
You can also have your voice sound scary and like monsters. AM
To accomplish a project you first need to obviously record. That sounds like a one time deal but only if your a great reader on the first try. If your not you could be recording for a long time. It’s always a good idea to add sound effects to get your listeners attention. Lastly make sure to give credit to the websites you borowed from. LG

Tangible Play (Now Osmo!) Review

collageI think Tangible Play is a great program. I like how you can play by yourself or with two teams of red and blue. Also, you can pick a grade level to play. I like how the pictures get harder and harder. But when the pictures get harder, it’s hard to find the subject of the picture. Like when there was a picture of a kangaroo and the word was marsupial and it was second grade! So I think Tangible Play would be better if they focus on what the main subject is in the photo that you are guessing.
