If you want to give your class a great writing experience and you have computer devices for your class to use why not try using Storyboard http://storybird.com/? Storybird is one of the most popular free tools for digital storytelling in schools around the globe.
Wondering what it is?
Storybird is a free (for schools) online story creating program that lets one make visual stories in seconds. One of the things that sets Storybird apart from other creative writing applications is that it curates beautiful artwork from illustrators and animators around the world and inspires writers of every age to turn those images into fresh stories. The stories can be made and viewed as e-books and they can also be purchased as hard cover books. My students love using this application.
