Talking Cookies ~ ChatterPix

My kindergarten class just spent the week reading lots of gingerbread stories:  Gingerbread Man, Gingerbread Baby, Gingerbread Bear,  and other silly versions such as The Stinky Cheese Man, The Runaway Pancake, and The Runaway Tortilla.

At the end of the week, my co-worker brought in some gingerbread man-shaped sugar cookies with all the fixings, and the kids had a great time decorating their own cookie to eat at snack time.

The cookies ran away while the kids were out for recess, and we had to go search for them!  They weren't in the kitchen, or the art room, or the office, and the other classes hadn't seen any cookie crumbs or evidence of our runaway snacks.  

But thank goodness we found those sneaky cookies!  I asked the kids to take a photo of their cookie with their iPad before they ate it, because we had to add some more magic to our day.

I wanted students to use ChatterPix to tell the story of their cookie, or retell one of the Gingerbread stories we read during the week.  Some students had a lot to say! 

I am excited to share this little creation with parents.  Check out the ChatterPix app - it's FREE!  Kids can use it in many ways - retelling a story, telling animal facts, restating classroom rules, putting some personality into their artwork, giving a report on a book or famous historical figure, or just for fun!
