How I Use It
Many students have weakness in writing skills, yet you give them a piece of paper and they create the most wonderful stories. This app does just that for students with low writing abilities. It allows them to create their own stories, using pictures and words. I found that students did more writing after they completed the drawings for their stories. They could go back and add text. Yes, it is elementary, but can be used with reluctant writers, weak writers and special needs students. Many wanted to created another right after they were finished.
I think this tool is great for beginning writers, ELL and special needs students. Getting them to write anything can be difficult, but putting a tool in their hands that allows creativity and fun, just makes it easier. I think it is elementary, but it is a good place to start for many.
