My newest discovery – storybird.com

Sharing on Twitter never ceases to amaze me.  In a recent exchange with one teacher (@mbteach), I discovered a website called http://storybird.com.  This teacher had posted the stories that her grade 2 and 3 students had written.  Check out her grade 3’s stories at http://blufordstudentwork.pbworks.com/Our-Storybird-Stories%3A-Room-202 .  I was completely inspired by these and got into a conversation with her about how the program works and about how she went about the logistics of getting her students to actually publish them.

From this conversation, another teacher (@mme_henderson) led me a great website by (@wizencroned) who made a wikispace for language teachers to post and share their storybird creations.  http://mfl-storybirds.wikispaces.com/French+Storybirds 

I was quite inspired by these creations and decided to create my own storybird book to reinforce some of what I have been teaching in science class.  You can check that book out on the wikispace listed above. 

I plan on having my students create their own books too!  This is a great way to reinforce the writing traits that we have been working on in our classroom and for my students to be able to share their work with other people!
