Tool 5

Me gustan los animales by montoy2m on Storybird

I learned a lot about all of the different tools available, but the two I choose were Storybird and animoto. Storybird is a website where you can create your own stories using images provided for different artists .  In kindergarten, we can create stories using new vocabulary or high frequency words,  read it in whole group and then students can practice independently during workstations.We also could created our stories together as a class and emphasize on the different story elements.
I have used Smilebox which is like animoto to  make videos of students on workstations and use it for open house.  Parents love to see their kids in action, they also get an idea of what is happening in the classroom. I would like to use animoto to create videos to introduce different social or science units of study.

  1. Storybird is a great tool. By using the images, it give students a starting place. Animoto, Stupeflix and Smilebox are all similar. Pick your poison!
