Creating Stories Can Be Social, Fun and Easy!!

For my collaborative project I created a digital ABC story with my colleage using fun graphics on! This is a FREE user-friendly website that parents, teachers, and students can use to create a digital story.

Each of the kindergarten classes chose 13 letters and found graphics to match each letter. This was an engaging literacy activity to do during whole group instruction. In order to hold students accountable I had students write the letter that we were working on as we were making the page on StoryBird.

I am already planning to make a digital story for each vowl. My students enjoyed picking graphics and creating the text for the story!

The kids loved it and so will YOU!
