Valentine's Day unwrAPPed and App Smashed!

Celebrate Valentine's Day by integrating two free iPad apps into your day! Students will take a selfie and use the app Pic Collage to create a digital Valentine's card featuring their picture. Then students will upload their Pic Collage into the app Chatterpix to record a message that their selfie will "say" when the video is played back (the mouth on their picture will even open and close!) Packet includes a checklist for students to use to stay on track, a lined sheet to compose their message, two ready reference sheets (one for each app), and step-by-step visual direction pages to help your students take a selfie, use Pic Collage, and Chatterpix independently!

Packet includes everything your students need to make a talking Valentine Card independently:
★ 1 full color step-by-step direction sheet with visuals to help students take a selfie on the iPad.
★ 5 full color step-by-step direction sheets with visuals to help students independently use both apps from start to finish.
★ 1 Checklist for students to use to stay on track as they complete each step of the project.
★ 1 Composition sheet for writing the script of their message with word bank
★ 1 Quiet Please Recording sign to display when recording audio in Chatterpix.

Print out the activity pages and distribute to your students. Student sheets include step-by-step directions that tell them exactly how to use the app. The included teacher notes pages will explain exactly which pages to print and how to use them. To save ink, full color direction pages can be projected or printed for smaller groups to share or just printed once and displayed in a center.

I make sure my unwrAPPed packs have everything you need to get started - you do NOT need to know how to use the app yourself!

You will need the free apps Pic Collage and Chatterpix. QR codes that direct to the iTunes listing for each app are included.
Since my products all utilize free web and app resources, there may be rare times that the technology does not work as planned, which may be out of my control. Please be sure to message me in the Q&A section so I can assist you before leaving feedback. I use all of the apps that I base my packets on frequently and will update products as the apps themselves update.
