Digital Storytelling for Elementary Students

Little Bird Tales is a digital storytelling tool that elementary age students will love.  It allows students to creatively express themselves whether writing stories or sharing factual information. Students can add their voice to their own illustrations or copyright friendly images.  ELL and modern language classrooms can use this site for language practice.  LBT recently added templates that align to CCSS standards for grades K – 5 for both math and ELA.   My 8th graders used LBT last year for their tall tales project.  Once done, students can share their tale with friends and family.

CC Connection: Lower grade students can use this site to apply word analysis and decoding skills.  Older students can use LBT to explain, create, retell, analyze and provide detail in all subject areas.
