Description: Activity: The students will come up with a story. They will then find/take three pictures to represent the beginning, middle, and end with no caption. Students will comment on each other pictures guessing or making up a story that makes sense with the pictures provided. Assessment: Students will be given an iPad with pictures that are out of order. Students must put the images in order. This will be checked as an informal assessment and then once it is in the right order students will be able to do a voice recording over the pictures to tell the story.

SOL: 2.8 The student will read and demonstrate comprehension of fictional texts. a) Make and confirm predictions. b) Relate previous experiences to the main idea. c) Ask and answer questions about what is read. d) Locate information to answer questions. e) Describe characters, setting, and important events in fiction and poetry. f) Identify the problem and solution. g) Identify the main idea. h) Summarize stories and events with beginning, middle, and end in the correct sequence. i) Draw conclusions based on the text. j) Read and reread familiar stories, poems, and passages with fluency, accuracy, and meaningful expression.

Learning outcome: Using pictures on iMovie the student will be able to correctly identify the beginning, middle, and end of a story in the correct sequence with 90% accuracy.

Technology: Instagram, iPads/iMovie

Pedagogy: Story telling, connecting pictures and text, ordering

Content: Summarize and identify beginning, middle, and end

TPK: Instagram allows multiple pictures so put in a fixed order those pictures can tell a story. iMovie on iPads allows for pictures to be put in different order so the students can order the pictures to tell a story.

PCK: Students are able to identify the beginning, middle, and end through ordering and connecting pictures and text.

TCK: Instagram allows multiple pictures per post to show order (beginning, middle, and end) and iPads allow for students to manipulate the order to put the events in the correct order.

  1. I think this is a great activity for teaching story sequence and it really gets students thinking about different stories that can be told through pictures, as well as text! This reminds me of an activity that I did with my students last semester focusing on story sequence, where I had them create a digital story. The students created a storyboard on paper before using the application StoryBird to develop the story digitally with both captions and pictures. Another pedagogical strategy that could be used is doing a Reader’s Theatre or acting out a story, filming it, and sharing it with the class. Other technologies that could be used include WeVideo, Power Director, or VideoShow, which are similar to iMovie and great applications for developing, editing, and manipulating digital stories.
