Knuffle Bunny Too!

Inspired by Mo Willems Knuffle Bunny series of books, the Grade 2 French Immersion classes started, and partially completed a small project today.  We read Knuffle Bunny Too, and discussed how the author uses real photographs and added other drawn pictures on top of them to make their story.  I took several pictures of places in the school, converted the pictures to black and white, and saved them on the schools server.  The students then had to pick one image, edit it, and then embed it in a word document where they could write the words that accompany their story.  One class almost finished, and another still has most of their writing to complete.  It was somewhat of a challenge for the French students who were not used to typing in French.  They had to become a little more used to typing and adding the letters with accents using the alt key plus the 3 digit code.  Overall it went well, and the students certainly seemed to enjoy it.  When its finished we may try to share them online so that others can see them, and even try to share them with Mo Willems.
An example of a students work.
