Hi Deborah, I have just read your lesson plan for a masters course I'm taking at UVic in BC. I' m doing a similar thing in my Kindergarten room this year using iPads. We are exploring our diverse natural environment ( forests, beach, river) and creating e-books with the creationary app. We take photos, record our ideas and then with help type our stories to create books. We are also hoping to share them with family and friends through a 'Family Facebook' I am creating for my class. Thank you for some wonderful ideas I hope to incorporate into my own teaching!

Love the lesson. I tweaked it a bit with other software but it works the same.

Thank you.

Deborah, Very excited about finding your lesson plan! I'm currently taking a course in technology in the classroom, and I am researching the use of digital photography + technology supporting student writing in primary grades. Have you had positive feedback about this lesson? May I use your lesson link in my presentation? thanks, Sue
