How I Use It
I think this app worked wonderfully for storytelling. It was easy to use because it walks the students through the storytelling process step by step.
My Take
I had my fourth grade students create their own a Porquoi Folktale. After completing their writing I had them use the app to create their final product. The students were able to record themselves telling their story and they had the option of using the stock images or drawing their own to portray the characters and events of their written tale.
