Children love texts with repetitive
texts, especially at the kindergarten level. After having shared
several lovable stories with my class we decided to publish our
class version of the classic "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What
do you see?" by Eric Carle. Instead of the conventional paper
and pencil route we decided to create our very own version using
a slide show on Kid Pix Deluxe.
As a class, we brainstormed and compiled a list of different animals.
Each child had the opportunity to draw their individual slides and
once completed they proceeded to record their voices in pairs of
2. Also, each child participated in developing the introduction
as well as the finale. The text was typed in for the children. However,
each student was responsible for typing in their own names.

is saved for the web the image is significantly smaller
than the origianl KidPix picture. So - the bigger the font
