Storybird

Mrs. Slaven and the ninth grade computer application classes have finished working on a very cool project!  These students used the website Storybird to create a story to share with our elementary students.   Storybird is a fun collaborative storytelling website.  Students and teachers can create stories together by combining imaginative artwork and text. The object is to start with the image, and allow the story to flow from there. The final product can be printed, watched on screen, played with like a toy, or shared in an online library with the world.  I believe that Storybird promotes imagination, literacy, and self-confidence.

Enjoy this sample by Freshmen Chasity Coldiron.
