They turned out great and engaged students who had never produced anything before. You can see an example of one where the student recorded the story he created as a video book at http://www.screencast.com/t/ySQIC29EXr, and a blog entry about the project is at http://cybenglish.blogspot.com/2011_12_10_archive.html. I wish i could get back to using this site again.

Storybird is more for a book and can&#39;t have audio / movement. Toontastic can also put a kids&#39; picture right into a character. So different tools for different needs!Jennifer Magierahttp://www.blogger.com/profile/10467628532951539043noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-100493291113167056.post-7249969246456365662013-07-03T10:00:25.406-07:002013-07-03T10:00:25.406-07:00Hi Jennifer, I have read several of your blogs a...Hi Jennifer, <br /><br />I have read several of your blogs and know that you use Toontastic in your classroom. I am wondering if your prefer this program over Toontastic or if you feel they have different uses in your classroom. I currently teach first grade and have taught my students how to use Toontastic. They love creating their own original stories and then sharing them with each other. The app is simple and very user friendly for first grade students. This webpage sounds very similar. <br /><br />On another note I enjoyed reading your post on differentiation using Everyday Math. I also teach Everyday Math and have been differentiating my math for individual students. <br /><br />Thanks for all the great posts!

Our ancestor teach their people using fascinating stories. We are the storytellers of the future. We have the technology and the story DNA within us. We are living in interesting times. Now is our time. Lets work together for a better world.

Now...kids have access to the same information that we do. Times have changed and so should we.
