Favorite Apps: ChatterPix Kids

ChatterPix Kids is so much fun!  My kids beg to use ChatterPix Kids for everything.  I love using ChatterPix Kids for summarizing, retelling, and point of view.  At this time, this is a FREE app.

To begin, students decide if they are going to take a picture with the camera or select a photo from the library. 

My students took a picture of the polar bear they drew.  (We did a step, by step drawing using chalk.  This student is a perfectionist when it comes to his art.)  After students take the picture, they take their finger and draw a line across the mouth (or wherever they want the mouth to be.)  If you look closely, you can see a dotted line across the polar bear's mouth.  

The next step allows students to record their message.  They have 30 seconds and can record as many times as they want until they are happy with their recording.  For this lesson, my students had written a nonfiction article (paragraph) about polar bears.  They recorded themselves reading their paragraph.  When they were finished, the polar bear spoke the information.  When we had Open House, parents went around the room and could listen to all of the different polar bears sharing information.
