Character Projects in 2nd through 5th Grade
The kids have been working really hard on a project during library and tech time for the past few weeks. Each student chose a picture book to read and picked a character to focus on from their book. We learned about external and internal character traits. Students wrote down a list of their character's different traits and then turned that list into a paragraph or two. They also drew a picture of their character's using colored pencils or markers. We then used a free I-pad app called "Tellagami" to create videos about our book characters. With Tellagami students create a their own customized character of themselves. Then we took a picture of their book characters they drew and added those as the background for our videos. After I taught the students how to use Tellagami they were able to independently create a video with a recording of their voice. Here some examples below of three of our students finished work. We had a lot of fun with this project and the kids did an awesome job!
