Create a Story
Teacher reads a classic story book from Smart board. Focus on Beginning, middle and end. (sequence of events)
This step is an example of SAMR model by substituting a book read from the teacher to viewing the book online on the Smart board.
Students listen closely to events.
2 Direct Instruction/Guided Practice
Teacher demonstrates story map and provides details from the story from beginning, middle and end. Teacher post story on smart board. Story does not need to be long but must include three parts.
This is an example of SAMR model. We use technology as a substitution for paper story map. Interactive tools on the smart board allow student involvement.
Students assist teacher by filling in the story map. Students begin writing their stories. Students have a beginning, middle and end. Students self edit on grammar. This includes spelling and punctuation.
3 Independent Instruction
Teacher demonstrates how to use Puppet Pals. This app allows students to create, animate and narrate their stories then share with others.
This step is an example of SAMR model. We are substituting a written story with a book created and animated online.
Students work together to narrate create and animate their stories
This step is an example of Blooms Taxonomy. It is provides students with a higher level of critical thinking.
