Bring the “Alphabet Book” to Life!

Untitled designIf you’re looking for a sweet way to share student work, make a video book! This example is a basic Alphabet Book created by my first graders.:

For this project we used Kid Pix, but you could easily use any drawing app ( Doodle Buddy, Drawing Pad, Draw Free) on the iPad. The cool thing about using Kid Pix was that we were able to add the letter as an animation. Each student got to pick a letter and they were to illustrate their letter. Because their letter contained an animation, we exported their drawing as a movie. We used Airdrop to transfer their videos to the main computer and from there, we imported their video into one iMovie. Once all movies were added, I called each student over to record their voiceover. When it is finished, it creates an adorable keepsake with their sweet little voices and artwork. This same type of project could work for any “video book” you wanted to create. Happy creating! 🙂
