FIrst grade--DrawingPad Comparison of Words with and without Silent E

Students brainstormed a list of words that changed, but were still actual words, when a silent e was added onto the end. For example, hug and huge.

From the list, or words they thought of on their own, students worked independently to create a DrawingPad poster illustrating the words with and without the silent e at the end and illustrating what the words meant.

In the typical 20 minute period of time allotted for creation projects, students completed 3-6 pairs. Each pair needed to be created on a separate screen. I had thought about using StoryBuddy so they could make a multi-page books, but we have used that app a lot recently and I wanted them to have more drawing options.
