Rootstown Second Graders Use for Creative Writing

As part of their literacy block in the AT&T Classroom, the Rootstown second graders are using  MyStorybook for a creative writing project. MyStorybook is a free online tool for creating short storybooks and digital stories. The platform provides blank pages on which a student can draw, type, and insert images. Students can select an image from the gallery that can be inserted on a page or used as a background.  Students can also upload their own photos or use the drawing tools to create a scene for their story. Using tools such as MyStorybook for creative writing provides rich opportunities for children to further develop their literacy skills  and to also build important  “twenty-first century skills” for critical thinking, creativity, and communication.
