Elf Yourself Digital Descriptive Writing Project

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Today in 3rd grader we practiced descriptive writing in a festive way! We used the website Cameroid and chose the "Elf" scene. Students snapped their picture and downloaded it to their desktop. Next, we used a shared collaborative Google presentation in which each student was assigned a specific slide. They dragged their picture from their desktop onto their assigned slide and then started writing a short paragraph about the prompt: "If I was an elf....". The font of their paragraph defaulted to the color red. If When they used a descriptive word, they got to change that word to the color green. This was a great visual representation of descriptive writing! Our original plan was to have the kids use MoveNote to record themselves reading their paragraph; however, MoveNote was timing out on us! We decided to do a quick display by having one child introduce all of the slides. Tomorrow it will be shown on the school's morning announcements. Check it out!

  Here is the presentation:
