We first discussed our favourite books and how books are very important to hold memories, give us information of the past and help us to learn about many things. We briefly looked at how some religions also have some very special books.
We then discussed the different forms we find books and how now we can get books electronically – eBooks. We had a look at some eBooks and how along with pictures and text they can also have audio.
The My Story app is a child friendly app, where children can add text, pictures (either from the camera or drawn using the in app tool) and audio. We decided to focus on adding pictures and recording ourselves, describing each other as we started to make our own eBooks. The focus was to try and describe yourself and what you look like. As a class we made a Class 1Y2 book and a Class 1A
Here are some examples of the eBooks we made today:
