In fifth grade, we discuss literacy genres. To help students learn the definitions, along with examples of book titles that fit into each specific genre, students worked in pairs to create genre posters. Once the students created their PicCollage, I uploaded the posters to Picasa. I used Picasa to create a video that I then uploaded to YouTube. Below is a link to our video. Enjoy!
Reflection: I liked using PicCollage, even for myself I had a blast! The posters turned out really good and the students really liked watching the video. It was powerful and we now know our reading genres. The only thing that I didn't like about PicCollage was the sharing of pictures. Since each group had their own iPad, I had to transfer the pictures through the USB cable to the computer.
