Story Videotelling

"I only know one thing about the technologies that await us in the future: We will find ways to tell stories with them. " Storytelling has been with us since we started to communicate with each other and retelling is one of the skills for better reading and our favorite. After we've read "Click, Cliack, Moo...Cows That Type" story several times to identify and internalize the most important points of the text, we used graphic organizer to prepare the retelling...
We hope you enjoy the video of our retelling.

Who ever heard such a thing: cows that type?!!
Ahhh it is Miss rawya’s class1
It is now explainable!!!

Video storytelling is a brilliant idea & I am sure they will remember this story forever.

I could feel the thrill in the kids’ voice & I identified Ahmad’s....ofcourse!

Learning is fun in your class Rawya. Thank you..Poor Farmer Brown he has to deal with all this technology!

thank you Mrs. Ghina...my students are always looking forward to the outcome activities of the selection...
and you're right, it's Ahmad, Jamal, and Omar..they've done a great job although it wasn't easy to read the script from the video...
second graders have enjoyed reading this story and so many questions arose especially when the animals went on strike...they loved the way the cows used to get what they needed most...
I hope I won't find a note on the classroom door tomorrow!!!!!
