8th graders finished up a What am I like project this week that they have been building up to with various guided homework assignments. They created a gami, an avatar, with the app Tellagami that spoke the written paragraph they created about themselves. Volunteers were then able to use AirServer on the iPads to show their presentations on the SMART Board right from their iPads. Very cool! Students read their paragraphs to me individually for feedback on their final speaking presentation and they received a written score on the paragraph as well. Student reflections indicated they enjoyed making the gamis and they felt their writing and speaking skills really improved as a result of the project.
Next week we will be working on a mini-unit built around the song Esta soy yo by Sueño de Morfeo.
¡Feliz Diá de Acción de Graci
