Storybird: Inspire a Young Writer
Storybird was introduced a few months ago, and it has quickly become a storytelling website favorite among students on the team! According to the website, "Storybird helps children, tweens, and teens find their voice and boost their literacy on a safe, secure platform." There are thousands of pieces of beautiful artwork that students can use to write their own stories and poems. The results have been tremendous. I love seeing their creative thoughts come to life! As a parent, you have access to your child's private published gallery. Visit the link below and enter the class password. You will need your child's username which they can help you with! You will also have the opportunity to purchase formatted PDF, ebook, and hardcover versions of their tales. Visit Kidblog to view some of the works that have been shared publicly!
