Storybird

2nd and 3rd grade are finishing up National Poetry Month exploring the website Storybird, which combines beautiful art with the opportunity for poets to add their own words to the images.

I’m disappointed that Storybird is no longer free (I used a free trial), which I realized this week, but it might be a worthy subscription considering how engaged the students were and the awesome poetry they created.  I always love when students find an early and strong appreciation for poetry, as I have observed they lose it with age.
