Today I was successful at creating a simple site. We chose a text for the junior class - The Lion and the Mouse. After going through the text we got in small groups and used Padlet to plan how we can implement multi modal/ multi text approach to make our teaching and learners understanding easier. This was so that we can plan, share ideas or resources.
We used the multi-text (Complementary Text, Scaffolding Text and Challenging Text) approach to meet the diverse literacy needs to meet learners learning style, interest and readiness. From there we created our own sites individually.
Some of the multi modal modes we looked at were -
- Explain Everything - create or questions to answer
- Writing/ Books.
- Photos/ images
- News articles
- Physical experiences
- Recordings or
- Other school blogs ...
The option given was either to focus on New Zealand Curriculum or Themes/ values such as:
- Being Helpful
- Size Doesn't Matter
- Everyone has different skills
- A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed
- One Good Turn Deserves Another
Below is snapshot of the site I created considering Year 2/3 level.
