1st grade students read An Egg is an Egg by Nicki Weiss. Each student used the My Story app to create 2 pages of their own following the format "A _____ is a ____ until _____." Students typed the sentence and illustrated.
Unfortunately the My Story app did not correctly download/save the stories because when I go to any of the links I get a message that the epub is not available, so I can't share samples. However, they were really cute.
Some examples were "An ice cube is an ice cube until it melts" and "Denim is denim until it gets turned into jeans." Some of their examples tied in with our solids and liquids science unit as well as discussions we've had about animals.
