Photo Story Project Overview

As of mid-September we are on Step 5 of the Big 6 Project: Photo Story poetry. Students have chosen a poem, selected digital images, created a citation for the poem and are now beginning to upload their images and text into Photo Story software.

Photo Story Checklist: Did you remember to use all the tools available to you in the Photo Story Software? Use this checklist to check off the elements you added to your story. Evaluate: Did you do your best work?

Freeplaymusic.com: This site is great for downloading background music for movies. The songs have no words, so will not distract from the text on your Photo Story slide.

Class Poetry Database

Laurelhurst 6th Graders used the Search Engines Google and Internet Public Library to find great poetry websites. The result is the following database that will be used to help 6th graders choose a poem for their Photo Story multimedia presentation.
