There’s still time to make memories with your Wixie accounts! A class memory book filled with each student’s favorite event from the school year is a great way to celebrate your growth and successes at the end of the year.
Have students create individual pages
When students log in to Wixie, have them click the Projects button on the toolbar.
At their Projects view, have them click the Templates tab.
Click the My favorite memory template to get started.
Click the Paint button and use the paint tools and options to draw a picture of your favorite memory.
Click the Library panel to add images.
Click the Text tool on the toolbar to add and type text about your memory.
Click the Options button to access the recording tools. Click the red Record button to share your favorite memory orally.
To add an element of metacognition to the project, ask students to reflect on the year and share the:
- most interesting thing they learned.
- most important personal accomplishment.
- hardest thing they accomplished.
Combine student pages into a class book
While your students are working, log into your Wixie teacher account and use the authoring tools to design a cover for your class memory book.
To collect student's finished work into a single class book, open the file with the cover you have designed. Click the Wixie button and choose Import Pages.
At the dialog, choose the students, projects, and pages, you want to add to this class book.
Share the memories
Click the Play button in the lower left corner to present a slide show at your end of the year party!
Click the Send button in Wixie to to publish and share your class's memories.
Choose Copy Project URL or Copy Project Embed to share the digital version through an email link, your classroom website, or social media.
Choose Export ePub to create a file students can import into their eBook library and read on devices at home.
Choose Export PDF to create a digital file families can view, share, and print on many different devices.
While you can print out the book to send home with students, all that ink can get costly! If you want to share a print version, consider choosing Print and Booklet, which prints 4 pages to a single sheet of paper. Then, fold each sheet and staple them all together.
No matter how you share, take a moment to read each entry as a class to celebrate your year.
