Ants, ants, and more ants--craft with printable directions

A few days ago, I shared a book I wrote using Boardmaker called "Ants Everywhere".  To go along with this, I also had the kids make a paper ant---a very simple craft with printable directions.  I used Pictello on the iPad to present the directions.  Pictello is a great app--nice because it has text to speech, it's engaging for the kids, and it's very user friendly.  It took about 10 minutes to make the Pictello story---once the steps were made, I  then exported to a pdf file to share with the teacher and with you!

Notice the Pictello app on the ipad

They're taking over! I love the one on the lower left!
I also made a simple communication board to go with this activity.

My principal observed this lesson by the way, and found it very entertaining.
