In our class we created many projects that reflect students’ feelings about the special people in their lives. My kindergarten students selected a special someone and then drew a few things on a planning page. They used the app Explain Everything and drew a picture of their mom (special someone) while they were talking about the special things about the person.
There were two challenges. One, it was hard to find a quiet space for students to record their ideas. Two, some students struggled to talk and draw at the same time. It was actually funny to watch. I had a parent volunteer or a student helper or sometimes myself sit with the child while they recorded the movie. I have permission from this family to post this very personal and special keepsake.
