Watch these videos in order to see how to add screencastify to your chromebook, use the Math Trainer for times tables practise, and then how to share your screencast to your blog. Good luck.

Please feel free to start a story in the comments...

SBC - Week 3 - Activity 7 - Zoom Out

This activity needs your help. 

You are invited to build on to the story by adding a comment. This means you need to zoom out of the image below with your who is holding the ice cream? What else might be in the picture if you zoomed out a bit? What might happen next?
Be sure to read others' comments first, and continue the story, by zooming out even further. We could build an amazing story. Give it a go!

So, here is the start of the story...

A delicious ice cream with raspberry sauce, sprinkles...AND a flake on top.
