I am happy to be linking up this week with Holly for Tried It Tuesday!
This week my students and are planning a short story as a class to prepare for the Embedded Assessment next week.
Our textbook is called SpringBoard and it lays out all the steps in black and white but tends to be a bit overwhelming for my Special Needs students. So I decided to make this:
It was made using easel.ly which was super easy to work with.
I had first tried piktochart but easel.ly has a lot more free templates to choose from than piktochart. Plus easel.ly has more options for graphics and placement of text. It just seemed much more user friendly. I made this chart in about 1/2 an hour.
Now throughout this week and next, I will display it as our "checklist" for our short stories. I may also even print it out so the students can have a copy at their desks. There are so many possibilities - it could also be used by students to create an assignment. We'll see!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you'll drop me a line to let me know you were here. :)
