ELA: Storybird and Digital Resources for Publication

Posted on Updated on

Need an easy way to publish student work digitally? Try Storybird!

ImageTeachers at Frederick Post Kindergarten gathered this morning to examine the technology standards currently embedded throughout the Idaho Core ELA Standards. At the Kindergarten level, students are expected to create digital publications with the support of adults as well as understand information presented in digital formats. Storybird is a free online tool that aligns with these new standards. Teachers can turn students’ writing into beautifully illustrated picture books in just a few minutes. Images are searchable by keyword and subject and the site can be easily used by an entire class to work on a collaborative project.

Campbell County School District in Wyoming has put together an excellent resource guide of digital tools, including Storybird, for teachers. The guides are broken down by individual standards and provide a listing of websites, apps, and software that meet the demands of each standard.
