Write, Direct & Star in Your Own TV Show!

Have your student write, direct & star in their own TV show with the TeleStory app!
TeleStory is an augmented reality video camera that has face-detecting costumes and special effects.

It includes themes such as The Band, Star Adventure, Eye Spy, and The News.
It was perfect for the weather unit our 2nd grade students were starting.
TeleStory is a ton of fun! It is the perfect app that inspires students to be creative.
TeleStory has numerous templates for students to use to write their scripts. Students type the script and then it appears as they record.

For the weather unit, our students selected a city to investigate the weather.  Using they looked up the temperature and wind speed. Then, they had to determine the type of clothing to wear and fun activities to do in that type of weather. After completing the script, they worked on fluency.

TeleStory has "spot on" steps for creating a broadcast!

Creating a TeleStory TV show is as easy as . . . 

1. Pick a theme, then mix and match over 30 animated scenes to film your own story

2. Craft a script using our playful TV tropes (or write your own)

3. Dress up in 50 different digital costumes with face tracking

4. Perform and record your own show with animated settings and special effects

5. Broadcast your by exporting it to the camera roll.

There are so many themes that encourage students to really write a unique tv show.

Happy broadcasting!
