When I Grow Up Keynote

What do you want to be when you grow up? Kindergarten English as a Second Language students used Keynote to take a peek into our future. With the help of remove background, magic move, and line draw animation students transform and showcase their hopes and dreams of what they want to be when they grow up. In our recent social studies unit about Community Helpers, my students learned about different job opportunities and how these people help our community. The final product of this unit was a collaborative Keynote to share and show our learning as well as create a personal connection. In beginning this project students watched community helpers videos and listened to read alouds, creating a shared writing anchor chart to practice our pencil to paper skills and serve as a classroom resource for this digital project. After building background knowledge and conferencing with each student to discover their interests, I guided them in creating their personalized slides in the Keynote. We took pictures of ourselves using the camera, used kid-friendly searches to find images of our future jobs, and used our Apple Pencils to write complete describing sentences. This fun and engaging project allows students to see the possibilities of what their future may have in store. Being that we are English as a Second language students I appreciate that Keynote supports language practice by incorporating all of the domains as well as integrating/blending our social studies standard and technology. Students enjoyed watching the final product and sharing it with our families through digital parent communication platforms.
