Hallowe’en Fun for Primary Students

We are having a lot of fun on our SMART Board this week as the board has been one of our activity centres in kindergarten.  The students are painting Hallowe’en pictures on a black background… very spooky!  When each student has made a picture, our educational assistant, Katie, is going to have them use the Notebook sound recorder to capture their voices reading the sentences.   She will embed the sound so that when the students touch the sentence, they will hear the reading.  For the next two weeks, we will listen to each student’s recording and then have the students read the sentences by themselves.  This is a great choral reading activity.

To do this activity, create a black background in Notebook on the number of pages required for each child to have one. The students use the paintbrush tool to create a Hallowe’en “painting”.  Use the Chiller font in orange to type their story.   Note: Do not print this out as the black background consumes a lot of printer ink and you will not be able to hear the voices!

 

If you have any questions about this activity, do not hesitate to contact me at pd@advanced-education.com

 

Happy Learning!
