Tech Talk: January Link Up


Ahoy!
I am joining Great Minds Teach Alike for a tech link up. Recently, I went to an iPad training and was introduced to some great apps to use in the classroom. The one I am super excited to share with you is called "My Story-Book Maker for Kids" by HiDef Web Solutions. It is $3.99. This last week we finished our Frog and Toad Literature Unit. My firsties wrote a little story with a problem and solution and drew 2 pictures to go with their story. This next week, we will be putting it into the app for each student to have their own story. Some great features of this app...

  • Super easy to use
  • Students can draw a picture in the app or you can insert a photo of their hand drawn picture. 
  • Stickers and text can be added to any page.  
  • Voice button.  My students are going to read their story on top of each page. 
  • BEST FEATURES....unlimited pages, unlimited books and you can publish your book and send to Google drive, Facebook, email, twitter, iBook etc. 
 Here is a sample page of a book I made about my daughter and her BFF.
 Thanks for reading and let me know if and how you use this app in your classroom. I would love to know. Happy Sunday.

  1. I love this app! I love using it for the publishing stage after my kids have finished their writing. I love that you can put it in iBooks and others can read it later.
