Wixie & the SAMR Model

Learning Activities

Math

Kindergarten or first-grade students can practice their counting skills by creating a counting book. 

Science

Students can draw the life cycle of a Monarch Butterfly showing the different stages with pictures and labels.

English/Language Arts

ABC Book – students explore initial sounds through the creation of a classroom ABC book.

Writing

Students can use Wixie to draw and write a story. They draw and write a beginning, middle, and end of their story as part of the personal narratives unit or the realistic fiction writing unit.

After studying folktales and tall tales, and identifying the main characteristics of these genres, upper elementary students create their own folktale or tall tale to teach a lesson or explain why something is the way it is.
