How I Use It
In the younger grades students need to learn the basics of a story. This app helps students learn and use the basic elements to create their own story. I like how it allows the students to be creative and create their own finished master piece. It's a nice way to get the students interested in writing but also helps to teach and reinforce the elements that make a good story. The younger students love to use it because it allows them to be in charge of their writing.
My Take
Overall I like this app. It gives the students the chance to create their own writing piece and share it with the class. It does have limits on the characters, graphics, etc so after awhile it may become boring and lame to the students. I would definitely suggest it to create a couple of stories but would look for an alternate to create more stories.
