Genre Study - Animal Stories

As part of the Fiction Animal Stories Unit class 1-111 read many fiction animal stories and wrote their own as the final writing piece.  This was an interactive story they wrote together and then uploaded it into digital form using Story Jumper.  Students used Google to find the pictures as a class and copied, saved, and uploaded onto story jumper. Students then recorded themselves reading the story on Voicethread.com to create a talking, digital story.  Enjoy!


Class 1-112 read the 'If You Give A Mouse' series by Laura Numeroff. They used the format of her books to interactively write a class story. 1-112 voted on what food to use so Mrs. Snider got to choose the animal. She chose a bulldog because her dog, Rocky Road, is a bulldog. We then made our story into a book using storyjumper.com. We uploaded the pictures from StoryJumper to Voicethread.com and recorded ourselves reading the story. We hope you enjoy reading 'If You Give A Bulldog Pizza' as much as we enjoyed creating it!
