As I was working on my digital story bookin class I thought (once again) about what a great instructional tool this will be for my students. It's a great visualization excercise. My students struggle with that aspect of comprehension; digital story books will be a great way to motivate them to develop that skill. I also think it will be a motivating way to have them practice repeated reading and fluency. I'm sure they'll record their stories or poems more than once before they're satisfied enough to edit the recording into their iMovie.
I was also thinking about what a change I'm in for when I go back to school in September. I have loved all the things we've done this semester, but I do believe incorporating all of this into my teaching is going to require a conscious effort to change my ways of thinking and work habits. I am definately looking forward to it though.
