Create a class memory book with Wixie

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Apr 24, 2019 8:59:02 AM

Wixie makes it easy to capture and record your student's favorite memories. Students can practice retelling as they choose an event from the calendar year or school year to celebrate growth and success.

My favorite memory

Have students create individual pages

When students log in to Wixie, have them start a blank page.

They can also open the Templates folder on the left, open the General folder, and select the My Favorite Memory template to begin.

Students can use the paint tools and options to create a picture of their favorite memory. They can also use the recording tool (microphone) to capture the memory orally.

wixie-tools

Student can use the Image button to add images from the library.

At this dialog, they can also select Camera to capture their image using their device's web cam (watch video instructions).

Use the Text tool on the toolbar to add and type text about your memory.

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. Go to the File menu and choose Import Pages

wixie-import-pages-select

Choose the students, projects, and pages, you want to add to this class book.

Click here for step-by-step directions.

Share the memories

Click the Show button on the Wixie toolbar to present student work as slide show at your end of the year party!

Go to the File menu and choose Share for a range of ways you can send the project to student's families and caregivers.

wixie-share-dialog

Choose Copy URL or Copy Embed to share the memory book through an email link, your classroom website, or social media.

Celebrate!

No matter how you share, take a moment to read each entry as a class to celebrate your year.
