How I Use It
I introduce the program, give a few simple instructions and let the students try it out. I usually tell students to look through all of the pictures in a collection before they select a collection and begin their stories. It's a great way to talk about planning a story before writing.
My Take
My 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders love the program and write multiple stories. They even select to use the program during their free time. Students sometimes can't find a picture to illustrate the next part of their stories.
