Storybird is my favourite web 2.0 tool, because you can make your own story up and read it. Our teacher has put a blog post on his blog that explains all about it to other teachers. Here is the link http://primaryedutech.com/2011/storybird/.
On the 15th of September 2011 we went to Wentworth residential care. We walked there, because it was close to our campus. Miss Verrusio and her class went with us. When we got there we met Sharon, who lead us to the hall area.
We started singing and all of them started smiling. After we sang we went to have a chat with the residents. I had a quick chat to one of them. They gave us a card, a drink and a biscuit before we left.
