My students' spoken comic strips



My students created captions for two cartoon strips about robots. After writing their captions, they took a photo of the cartoon strip, which was in their books, and recorded their lines using the educreations app for the ipad. BTW, they were supposed to include modal verbs/expressions of obligation, permission, and/or prohibition.

Thanks Dani Lyra for the great idea!
