Cynthia Rylant author study

Second grade students studied author Cynthia Rylant last month and wanted to do something with technology as the culminating activity.  Students learned about the author and her books in the classroom.  When they came to me, we:

- Watched the beginning of a BrainPOP Jr. video about Rylant:

- Created a Little Bird Tale as if we were the creators of a Henry and Mudge story.  Check it out here:

Students had a choice to use the Paint program to create their pictures or to draw them by hand.  Just over half of the class choose the computers while the others preferred their drawing tools in hand. 

I got inspiration for this project from the Van Meter Voice blog's Mercer Meyer author study.  Check it out!
