At the beginning of the year I wrote a letter asking about the technology at their homes. All of the letters came back signed saying that the students had access to both computers and internet at home. If this wasn't the case I would have had to come up with plan B. So yes they did it at home.

    Did you have students to complete this at home for homework? Many of our students don't have technology or internet at home, making many of our resources not available to them at home...

        Great idea! I love this!! We try to communicate with parents through email and I have always had parents who said they didn't have an email.

          I agree that is a great idea! If all of my students have access to the internet/computer, they could use Storybird on snow days, as well as, other sites that are fun and educational!

              Ms. Martha: For teachers who have student of primary grades, there's another website/app called "Little Bird Tales" that is a nice website. Kids can use the voice recorder and draw a picture to tell... more

                I really liked the "Little Bird Tales" app. It is great all the ways this can be used with the younger children. I can see how the younger students will enjoy the Art Pad piece. The pre-readers can... more

                Melanie Thanks for the new app! I have never used it, but just set it up and plan on adding it to my website.

                  I had not heard of this either and spent some time exploring the website since I am having the storage issue. I am assuming the app would be even more "kid friendly" and I really want to download it... more

                  You are welcome, Candi! I hope it works well for your class. I learned about "Little Bird Tales" when attending the 2015 ACS Technology Institute, and it's really child-friendly.
