ChatterPix Kids App Supports Summarizing at West Birdville

Fifth grade students spent time showing what they know using their new iPads and the ChatterPix Kids app. The TEK supporting their work was 5.11A and Fig 19 D- summarize the main idea and supporting details in a text in ways that maintain meaning and logical order. The students used non-fiction text and created a short 3-5 sentence summary on paper. They then used ChatterPix kids to verbalize their summary. After they created the video they reflected with a partner using a rubric to decide if the summary they created was: Excellent, good, average, or ineffective. Combining the listening piece with the written piece gave the students an opportunity to improve their understanding of summarization.
