Today I will be talking my love of all things slides and drawings at Fusion in Hays. Hands down my go-to creation tools when I want students to express their collaborative or independent learning with a dash of creativity and communication when they are ready! Check out the slide deck below, happy creating!

gif it over for brush ninja
I have used brush ninja a few times this year to allow kids a chance to make their own animated gifs while illustrating their learning. One week we illustrated vocabulary terms, some students showed a change in a character’s feelings, and others showed natural disasters or events. No matter the task, brush ninja allows an element of creativity in their demonstration of understanding. We can’t get enough! Easy to use and customize, students learn quickly how to change a background, duplicate a slide to show change gradually, and to save to their google drives and share images with peers. Here are a few students samples, all quickly created in one class session.
summertime books and jams
Vacations aren’t a given for all kids, especially this year. But I think we can all dream about what we would like to do this summer – and these jamboards are meant to get them planning for the vaca they’d like to take after they read a bit from this bitlibrary about summer. First, a jam to plan out the vacation top items, then they can use the pictures to have a friend guess where they are going. Need a writing prompt? Create a postcard on the jam telling about the best day on vacation! Here’s my example jam to get the vaca clues started.
