Storybird {Story Creation}

Storybird is a different way of having students participate in creative writing. They offer three different types of stories that you can create -- picture books, regular books and visual poetry. 


As a teacher, you can create an assignment that students have to turn into you, or you can allow students to pick any picture of their choosing and have them send you their project when they are done.
I've used this as a creative writing prompt for bellwork in my classroom, and have also shared it with the art teacher who uses it often to incorporate writing in her classroom.

Try it out & let me know what you think,
Mrs. Tech

*If you are more of a visual learner, check out my "how to" video on using Storybird, as well as some way to use it in the classroom.

**If you want to have your students try out Storybird, download this tool that walks them through step by step directions on how to create their first story.

    1. It's great for word recognition to if you use the poem feature where they give the words for you!
