Create Your Own Books with Storybird

The Common Core Standards for Writing encourage our students to “Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others.” Storybird allows students and teachers to create digital books based on artwork. You can create a free account, a teacher with class account, or a free child account (associating a parent email). There are some paid options offered such as downloading as a PDF or creating softcover and hardcover copies of a student’s creation.

Check out the following Storybird book.

About us: a peek inside Storybird by mark on Storybird

Storybird provides the illustrations to inspire writing. It doesn’t allow uploading your own art. The Storybird for schools page provides an overview, and there’s plenty of information about getting started, assignments, and publishing on the Storybird for Schools FAQ page.

      We’re happy to see that you’ve found Storybird to be a good tool for creating your story. Because of the nature of the stories created, they’re best viewed within a web browser rather than printing to paper. By default, all stories are private. If you change the settings for your story to public, it will be published to the web so that you can invite others to view your work by sharing the web address. You can find more information about this process here: http://storybird.com/faq/general/#publishing-storybirds. As an alternative, you can create a PDF archive at a cost. Your story still needs to be made public first.
