Papa Please Get the Moon for Me: Story Response


My goal was to have students make connections between themselves and the story. This can be accomplished through typing, voice-to-text, audio, and/or video recording in Keynote. I am aiming to provide students with as much flexibility as possible in their responses. I believe this approach helps build confidence in my classroom and allows students to showcase themselves in their preferred medium no matter their language. This can also be before or after a Moon research lesson.

  1. Activate prior knowledge by discussing what students know about the moon.
  2. Review when we see the moon, its location in space, and that its shape is always changing.
  3. Introduce the story "Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me" by Eric Carle.
  4. Read the story aloud and stop to discuss questions along the way.
  5. Display and review the Keynote on Apple TV. Together, read the sentence "If I had the moon..." and discuss how we would finish the sentence.
  6. Demonstrate to students how to complete the Keynote task using either typing, voice text, or video recording.

Wow, simple but engaging Keynote to enhance the story reading. Great way to personalize the story text for the learners. Thanks for the steps!

It would be wonderful for Forum members to see your Keynote as they read your post. Just a suggestion - take a screen shot of the Keynote slide and embedded it at the top of your post.
