Math Stories in Kindergarten

Kindergarten students have begun to move beyond only consumption of material, but instead creating their own resources to show what they know.  In the past, teachers would create material for the students to watch or listen to on a device.  

With the use of Educreations, Kindergarten students create "Math Stories" where they dialogue a math problem.  An example may sound like "Yesterday I went to the store and bought 6 apples.  Today I went back and bought 3 apples.  I now have 9 apples."  This allows the students to put the math into their own words in a way that allows for creativity and a higher level of thought.
