How I Use It
I use this when working with quieter students. For example, if we are focusing on character education I might have the students create a story using a particular trait. I have also used this when working individually with students who have trouble expressing themselves.
My Take
This is a great tool to get kids exploring and engaging their creative sides! Some children have a difficult time expressing themselves and this program gives students a chance to share visually. While it does require assistance for younger students, middle school students should be able to easily utilize this tool. I have found it helpful when doing therapy as well. Some students find it easier to tell a story about someone like them rather than actually talk about themselves.
