My myth is called “The Golden Touch” and it is about a king that gets the power to touch everything in his kingdom and it would turn to gold. I the end he doesn’t want it anymore because now he know he should be thank full for what you have.
When I shared my with the first graders I thought I should make an myth that is easy to listen to and “The Golden Touch” was perfect because it is easy to listen to, funny and it has a good life lesson, it is do’t be greedy and be thankful for what you have.
I thought I did good at speaking clearly and loudly so it was easy for the kids to get what is going on in the story. Also I think I did good on my expressions were funny and entertaining so the kids were more into the story.
Next time I should work on my drawings because they “need improvement” and the kids were looking more at the pictures then listing to the story.
Here are my final pictures for my book! (for English)
My last step was to finish hot gluing my book.
Finished my Book Yay!!!
All the pages are glued in and ready to read!
The book I made is called the Golden Touch and it is used just like a normal book we use today. It was very hard though to cut out the cardboard and punch holes in them so next time I will make the book less thick. It was easy to find a good myth because there are lots of goods myths so next time I should find a myth that is not as popular so people can learn a new lesson. My myth is very fragile so I think that is what I should work on making it more sturdy next time. The loops holding the pages together tend to open, so I would figure out a way to secure them. Next time I should make my book smaller so my words fit the whole page or next time I will make the font bigger (even though my teacher really liked the way it fit!). I learned about the design cycle and how to use it and next time I should do more research and planning.
