Faces iMake and descriptive writing

I love this app! It is very funny and really gets the right brain working. Students worked alone to create a funny face. Then, they saved their pictures to the photos on the ipad. I downloaded the photos to my computer and then printed them out.  We are learning to write descriptive sentences in French using sentence frames (i.e. Voici __________. Il a___________. Il est __________.)

I printed their 'face' and they used it to write. The results were very impressive and lot's of fun to share. I love a lesson that involves laughter and imagination, and a lot of student engagement :)

What do you think? Have you used this app in your classroom?

Here are a few finished sentences and the whole class display. I also created a class book for students to read a share.


  1. Sooo fanciful and fun! Thank you for sharing... I would love to see the stories to match these faces. Bravo les petits!
