Let’s write a story

Students watch “Let’s write a book-Field Music” and try to find the words.

1. Make a wordle using the vocabulary you see in the music video

Watch the music video:

Give the students each a copy of the ‘wordle’.  Drill the words in the ‘wordle’ and check for understanding. Ask the students to circle the words they see  in the video.  Watch the video three times as the images are very fast.  Students count how many words they found.

Add some words to the wordle which are not in the video to make the task more difficult.

To make this activity more competitive put the students into groups.

Ask students what other things they saw which were not in the wordle.  e.x. periscope, rhino etc.

Voice Thread- My first attempt;

I learned how to use this application by watching this helpful step by step guide by Russell Stannard.

I circled all the objects in the movie to show the students where the words are.

Check it out by clicking here.

If students know how to use ‘voice thread‘ then they could add their own comments to the video.

[This is my very first attempt. If I did this again I would choose a brighter colour to highlight the images.]

Let’s write a story

Explain to the students that the song title was called “let’s write a book”.  Tell them that they are not going to write a book but they are going to write a story using as many words from the ‘wordle’ as they can.
