To tie in with our study of worms in science, pairs of 1st graders read Diary of a Worm by Doreen Cronin.
Using iDiary they created their own worm diary entry.
Once they had that assignment mastered they created a diary entry pretending to either be a leprechaun or a student who follows all the rules at school (current social studies unit). They used Toontastic for those diaries. Perhaps due to the different format they were more stories than diary entries written in the past tense about what had already happened earlier in the day. Still pretty cute.
