Storybird is a fun and easy way to create stories based off of pictures, themes, genres, or really whatever you're choosing to teach in your classroom. Shorebird is a website that you will have to set up for your students, but it truly can be simple. I choose to use my students' ID number as their username and then all passwords be the same. This makes set up go quickly but yet their accounts are private.
This assignment was set up to be a summative assessment as we had studied themes, genres, figurative language, vocabulary, etc. throughout the year. You could use this assignment in many ways. Please feel free to edit this as it is a Word Doc assignment.
