StoryBird - Chrome App

My students have been using Story Bird to write. They love the illustrations available to choose from to use either as inspirations to write, or to illustrate an existing story idea. Now if only I could get them to put capital letters at the beginnings of all their sentences...

We definitely need to work on typing skills. I have found the hunting and pecking makes them completely forget that they need to capitalize the words at the beginning of sentences.

Spectacular Things to Come - Genius Hour 2.0

I would like to say, we are already there, that we are creating, inventing, building, imagining and inspiring to be.... But, we aren't quite there yet. I am impressed with the ideas my kids have come up with. Overall this year I had a lot less blank stares. It seems I have a class of builders this year, which is very exciting.

A group of my students were very excited about landforms. They illustrated the landforms and gave a brief description of each.  They even added a quiz at the end of the book.
