    • Teresa Castellaw 4 th Grade Wittenburg t [email_address] With Digital Tools Goes 21 st Century Language Arts
    • Use Technology
      • To enliven your literacy program
      • To motivate and engage students
      • To allow students more responsibility and accountability for their learning
      • To make your classroom more global
      • To make your life easier!
    • K-2 Language Arts
      • http://www.wordle.net
      Ideas for Wordle: Spelling list, letter recognition, phonics practice, sentence order, etc.
    • Create Cartoons
      • http://www.toondoo.com
      Use for digital storytelling with beginning readers and writers.
    • Read Aloud Software
      • Read the Words
      • Awesome Library/ Talkster
      • These are just 2 sites I found with free downloads for read aloud. Use for reading student stories, spelling words, or information from any website.
    • Site for All!!!
      • www.cooltoolsforschools.wikispaces.com
      • This site has links for all kinds of digital tools
      • By category such as: presentation, collaborative,
      • Research, video, music, drawing, writing, etc.
    • 3-5 Language Arts
      • Bring stories to life on the web. There are a world of possibilities and many are FREE!!!
      • Let’s look at some examples:
      • Legends and Folktales by country
      • Aesop's Fables read aloud (also fairy tales, poetry, famous authors, tongue twisters, etc.)
      • Pat Walsh’s Stories for Learning Use story telling to teach science and social studies’ lessons.
      • Lit 2 Go Free collection of stories and poems in
      • Mp3 format.
    • Digital Storytelling
      • Powerpoint is a great program but there are tons of other free software available.
      • Here are just a few:
      • Glogster ========
      • http:// www.wix.com
      • Photostory 3 (example)
      • Voice Thread
    • Ideas for Using Digital Tools in Language Arts
      • Create a photo essay of an original story
      • Write in the perspective of the character as a journal entry
      • Create a news broadcast of the events of a story
      • Make a multimedia experience
      • Famous/Infamous Storytellers:
      • Storyline online – Many famous celebrities doing
      • read aloud of popular children’s books.
      • BookHive – Wonderful storytellers
      • *Use as introduction for storytelling. Have students view examples and practice their own versions.
      • Book Trailers as Introduction for Book Talks
      • Book Trailers Students will see a very brief video like a movie
      • trailer about the book.
      • You Tube – search children’s book trailers – Tons of examples of student made videos as book trailers.
      • Use Voice Thread, Photostory 3, Glogster, Wix, etc. for
      • creating Book Trailers and Book Talks.
    • Tools for Reader Support
      • Word Wizard Easy template to create mini dictionary using any theme, book, or vocabulary level.
      • Into the Book Interactive activities with 8
      • research based strategies.
    • Book Marking Site
      • www.ikeepbookmarks.com
      • Instead of using “favorites” to
      • mark all your favorite websites,
      • use this site to organize and free
      • up space on your laptop.
    • Screen Capture Tool
      • www.jing.com
      • If you’ve never used a screen capture tool, watch and learn. It can be used for so many useful things in the classroom.
    • Finally – The End
      • This is the tip of the iceberg!
      • I have found tons more resources
      • but too little time to include.
      • Email me if you would like
      • additional resources or help with
      • any of the software presented
      • today.
      • Thank you for joining me!
