12 Days of Christmas iPaddery – Day 9

Day 9: Use Shadow Puppet Edu to retell the Christmas story (Y1+2)

shadow puppetShadow Puppet is a great free app. It has nothing to do with shadows, puppets or rabbits (its icon). Very young children can use it to retell a story. Just capture images (these could be sources online, photos of children’s own artwork or produced electronically in other apps), sequence them, press go to record the story in real time as you move through the pictures. There are some nice laser pointer tools that children can move over the pictures to draw attention to different aspects of the story. This app has many uses right across the year, and it’s completely free.
