This term our class have been introduced to an exciting website called
Storybird is a visual storytelling community, a global hub of readers, writers, and artists of all ages. It involves us being able to write a picture book, poem or chapter book but the catch is that we are given the illustrations first and then need to create a story using these pictures. There are literally hundreds of choices of illustrations to meet all our interests.
What’s great about this website is that we can share our stories with each other and write comments reflecting on the story that we have read. We can also read other children’s books that they have published online and it is very interesting to see how other people have used the images to create an imaginative story.
Check out our stories below.
As it was our first time, writing a story with using pictures first, it was a challenge to a lot of us because sometimes we could not always write the story how we wanted to as there was no picture to match it. However this really helped us expand our imagination further and use a variety of vocabulary to design a story that was entertaining for people to read.
