Technology Tuesday: TinkaMaker and ChatterPixKids

We are so excited about our Kate Klise visit coming up in November! Today with First Grade I read her book Little Rabbit and the Meanest Mother on Earth.
Before the story, we predicted why she could be the "meanest mother on earth".  After the story, the students completed the sentence My mom is the meanest mom when she....  Then on the iPad we used the app TinkaMaker

to create what our meanest mother looks like.  The kids had a great time adding wild hair, different shaped heads and ears and experimenting with different eyes and mouths to make her look mean.  
We took screen shots of our creations (that was exciting with first graders) and then opened the ChatterPixKid app.

Here we were able to take our meanest mother picture, add a mouth and record our sentence.

Both of these apps are free and tons of fun to use by themselves, but put them together and watch what happens.
