Storybird is a writing tool that is free to use online. It can be used collaboratively or individually. You have access to lots of artwork from some amazing illustrators and artists to use as inspiration for your stories. This is a great tool to use for students that are either reluctant writers or struggle to develop a story line. My class has used it very enthusiastically and I was very pleased with the writing it inspired. Please find below a short video that explains what is possible and an example of a story produced by one of my Year 2 students.
