multimodal literacy

February 15, 2011

Maiyko does wonderfully creative stuff with a group of preschool children. Here are some examples of work done inspired by Dr. Seuss’ “Marvin K. Mooney will you please go now!” More can be found at Maiyko’s Photobucket. It is amazing, may look simple, but you can tell that a lot of work and thought has gone into these images. Children most likely reflected on Dr. Seuss’ text and illustrations, came up with their own ideas, wrote their text, made colorful drawings emphasizing the outlines with black pen, added onomatopoetic sound bubbles and even a pretty frame. That is truly multimodal literacy at its best!

I have had this idea for a primary school class project, where children paint animals “talking” in speech bubbles, which I would love to see put into practice, so when I found these paintings  by Martin Praska they made me smile. They are called: Bear, thinking of Love, Rabbit, thinking of Beauty, and Fox, thinking of the Universe, respectively.

As other people have said, the iPhone is actually not such a great phone, but I love the fact that I  have a reasonably decent camera in my back pocket. This picture I took a while ago . It says what it is: BILD = image.
