Story Time 2.0: Reader’s Theater

Recently, Fox Hill Elementary and IPS #15 students used Story Cubes and their imaginations to create and share their own stories! Narrators read & recorded their group’s story using a snowball mic and Mixcraft software, while other members of the group acted out the story on the stage in the Learning Curve’s Green Screen Theater. Listen to a collection of these creative stories on the podcast players below!
