Teacher Review for My Story - Book Maker for Kids

My students absolutely love creating their own personal narratives and poetry using Mystorybook. This innovative technology tool is one way for kids to express themselves and share with others. We love seeing our illustrations come to life!

How I Use It
My students use this technology tool as a resource to publish their writings and poetry. They did a prewrite on paper then edited their piece with peers. Then they uploaded their illustrations, and some used the illustrations already in the gallery to create a digital storybook to share with peers and parents. It was easy for my google classroom students to join to complete their books.
My Take
I would recommend Mystorybook for several reasons. This innovative technology tool is easy for students to use. For example, the picture gallery has a wide range of images to use for various types of writing. Also, the books are realistic because they have a cover, pages, and an authors page for students to take ownership of their writing! After making their digital books; the students shared their books online for family, friends, and peers. They loved reading their digital books they created. As a teacher, I am thrilled to see my students experience the love of learning using Mystorybook!
