Storybird – Artful story telling – Our Stories

Recently in our class we had the opportunity of using the Storybird website to write our own picture storybooks using the wonderful art provided. We really enjoyed writing and used the visual cues to help create interesting short stories.

Here are the first of the completed short stories.

We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed writing them.

Congratulations to Travis, Anna, Kelvin, Trinity and Jade

for each successfully publishing their first short story.
