The 2KM and 2KJ students who are not participating in the swimming program are enjoying learning some new skills. Last week, they learnt how to use Glogster and Tagxedo. This week, they are creating stories with Storybird.
Storybirds are short online stories that are inspired by art. To make a Storybird, you need to go to http://storybird.com and sign up. Miss Jordan and Mrs Morris signed up their students through their teacher account.
There are all different sorts of artwork that you can choose to illustrate your Storybird. The students chose their artwork first to help them think of story ideas.
Here are some of the stories…
Later in the year we might make some collaborative Storybirds like B4 in New Zealand did with their friends in Mrs Watson’s grade in Canada. You can read about the fun they had here.
