Our class was having a bit of trouble writing our small moment stories during writer's workshop. So today we started something new. Instead of writing the books the traditional way, we are trying to use the app Book Creator to help us. The first things we are doing are drawing sketches across the pages of the book to help us generate our ideas. Next, the students are recording what each page is about using the voice recorder. These are the prewriting steps we are trying to help us organize and remember the details in our story. We will see if using our ipads will help us create more focused "seed" stories.
