Lippman First Graders Create Digital Stories with Toontastics

Today in the AT&T Classroom our Lippman first graders explored the Toontastics app on the iPads. Toontastics is a free iOS app that allows children to draw, animate and share animated stories.  Children are also able to add audio to their story by recording their own voices. Using tools such as Toontastics to create digital stories provides opportunities for children to further develop their literacy skills (e.g., reading, writing, speaking & listening) and also build “21st century skills” — critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication.
