Retelling of I Want my Hat Back

Toontastic Retelling of “I Want my Hat Back” by Jon Klassen, directed by Ysabelle Saguin

Toontastic seems like a great tool to use with students to assess their content knowledge. You can have them retell stories, as I have modeled above, create their own stories around learning, demonstrate new ideas, or to teach others with a “how to” video. This tool is simple to explain and I can see myself using it with mid to upper elementary school students. The characters are fairly straight forward to create and narration is a great aspect, however, it is quite limiting in some respects. The students would be limited to using the music and movements in the app, and would only be able to use it on mobile devices. Otherwise, it is an interesting tool I look forward to implementing in my classroom.
