Photo Story: A New Storytelling Medium

We have been using Photo Story 3 in grades 3-5 for a variety of topics. Photo Story 3 brings storytelling to a whole new level. Digital storytelling is happening around the world with schools now catching on! Third graders are working on writing informational stories about a famous rock formation around the world. Fourth graders are finishing up their photo stories about a topic of their choice. Fifth graders are in the midst of explorer stories. The lab is bubbling with creativity and excitement as students work on importing pictures, adding titles, recording narrative and creating music to fit the mood of their stories.

If you have Microsoft Windows, you too can make photo stories at home with your family by going to the Microsoft site and downloading the program.

Here is a story I made to use as a sample for students to see a finished product. It is about my daughter’s summer. Enjoy! Summer of Fun

PS. This is my first time uploading a video file, so if there are any problems, please let me know and I will work on fixing them. Thanks!
