Freeze frame



20130905-211605.jpg. We had a great time trying out a trick i learned at Carol Gaab’s reader’s theater workshop NTPRS 13! It is called Freeze Frame. I think you could use it a lot of ways but I will tell you how I did it today.

In Spanish 1 we use Cuéntame más. We are working on the Muchacho Pastor story. We’ve been slowly building our story for two weeks, and today we tried a story twist. I gave them a variation of one of our class stories and broke them into groups of 5-6. Their job (rather than to illustrate it to show comprehension as I’ve done in the past) 6 lines of the story, posed their group, and I took pics w the iPad. Tonight I used their pics and the educreations app to create little movies that we can watch tomorrow and get more reps as they hear me narrate the story to their pics! Lots of fun!

In Spanish 4 we are reading “La Llorona de Mazatlán”. We finished chapter two and won’t get to chapter 3 until Monday. I divided the story into small sections and the class into groups of 2. They each posed for their part and then I created educreation movies so that on Monday we can catch back up with the main character, Laney!

Thanks to Carol for the great idea! The pics are adorable and the promised movies have them so excited for tomorrow!
