Do you use Storyjumper in your classroom? Many 2nd through 4th grade students are using this tool to create digital stories with detailed settings and plots. Some parents have taken advantage of the printing feature to get their child's book published. One student brought in his published story to share with his class. Check it out and let me know if you have any questions about this tool!
