Using the Imperfect and Storybird

This week we are learning the imperfect tense. The students will create digital stories using Storybird and the imperfect tense.  I have included the links for my imperfect story and the rubric I used.  If you find any errors or would like to change it, please feel free. :)

I am so excited to see what my students will create.  Storybird is a free program online that allows students to use a predetermined set of illustrations to create a story.  There are some limitations with the program, so play around with it first so you can make sure this is what you need for your classes.  My classes are 9th graders, and this works just fine.  I like having the limitations...others may want their students to have more creative license.  There are a ton of digital story programs.  Here is a link if you are interested in other programs.
