        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!

              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.
