Kindergartners collaborate with 2nd and 3rd grade "Big Buddies" to create a slideshow in Kid Pix Deluxe 3 to retell a favorite story. To enhance our "Author of the Month" theme, Kindergartners select a familiar story previously shared in class to retell, focusing on the sequence of story events and story elements. Kindergartners develop speaking, drawing, writing and technology skills as they retell their story to a Big Buddy. Kindergartners create the individual slides to "retell their stories" and Big Buddies produce the slideshows. The project addresses Kindergarten standards in reading, writing, language and technology as students publish their writing with a "Digital Storybook." Big Buddies develop their technology skills and have the opportunity to mentor Kindergarten Buddies.
