Holiday Booktalk Buncee's!

Earlier this week, I shared a very special Halloween Buncee project that my friend and colleague, Megan Warwick and I, have been working on this week with her amazing 2nd graders. 
We thought it would be great to focus around one of the books being shared on our It's Halloween....You've Been Book'd list. 

They enjoyed reading them so much and we wanted to give them a chance to share their favorites and what they loved in a Buncee Booktalk where they could add stickers, animations, images, text and even their own voice as they share their favorite book. 
After collaborating, Megan created a little sheet to guide them in the creation of their Buncee. Megan made an example of her favorite book from the list, Christopher Pumpkin. 

This was the first step in this project and one they finished before starting on their Buncee. 
As we started the Buncee part, Megan and I decided to use the NEW Buncee 3.0 app for this project with our new iPads.  We were very excited about the possibilities of them creating using the app.

Since they have used Buncee before, her students were familiar with how Buncee worked, but Megan did go over little tips before they started their Halloween Book Buncee.
The app is very similar and initiative as they use stickers, animations, words and other assets to share their book review. 
She even showed them how to add their voice to different assets which will be so much fun for this Halloween Buncee....
 ...ghost and witch sounds, sharing their story and more will bring their Buncee to life.

When they finished their Buncee's, we taught them how to turn on the Stitching feature so we could bring all of them together in one big collaborative Buncee, which you will find....
here. We also printed it off and Megan is going to make it into a book for their classroom. 

We can't wait to see what you create in your Booktalk Buncee Collaborative Class Books too!
