Using Book Creator to create a WAGOLL text to support pupils in Y1

First post in a long time!

For today’s Literacy lesson, I prepared a pre-recorded version of my WAGOLL persuasive text in order that the group could access the text and ‘magpie’ vocabulary to use in their own writing.

I created the text using my iPad, importing screenshots of the WAGOLL text into a new book within the Book Creator app. Using the ‘Add a sound’ tool,  I then recorded myself reading the text and asking the children to identify the ‘wow words’. The children then recorded their responses.

iBooks made on Book Creator can now be exported as a video for publishing to YouTube.

Using Thinglink to bring story mountains to life!

This week in Year 1 we have been retelling Michael Rosen’s ‘The Bear in the Cave’. We used Thinglink to create interactive story mountain, which we will use to support our written work. Check out our great story mountains below.
