As part of the Voices of the World project run by Sharon Tonner in Scotland, we have to complete a different task every month that focuses on using the kids voices. This month I got Grade 2/3 to lend me their voices to say numbers in English and Chinese. Here is the result:
I got all the kids to write a number and decorate it. I then took photos of their fabulous artwork. While they were working, I took my iPod with itâ€™s voice recorder attached around the room and got each student to say a number in English or Chinese. I put it all together in Photostory 3, which is a free download from the internet. I had to adjust the timing of the images so that it matched up with the audio which took a bit of fiddling, but that was all.
To see numbers presentations from other classes around the world, go to the Voices of the World wiki and click on Februaryâ€™s Task.
What an inspired project this is. I love hearing the kids voices and their artwork is just magnificent Jess.
Hi Jess, this sounded great. Such a simple concept taken to a great effect. Well done. Nicole
