1st and 2nd Grade--StoryBuilder

We are starting to talk about narrative writing. Students used the StoryBuilder app to create a story based on a cartoon picture in the app. I like the app because it allows students a wide variety of pictures (almost all 24 of my students chose something different to tell a story about). In addition, students had the opportunity to self-select the level of storytelling difficulty they were ready for. The options were for 4 or 7 or no question prompts. The stories they told were really cute. The cartoon downloaded to Posterous along with the audio recording, but when I tried to download from Posterous only the audio recording downloaded. Several students asked to tell more stories during choice time this week, always a good sign of a fun activity.
