Writing How-To Pieces with Story Kit

I know what you are thinking. You are thinking that you already know about Story Kit. It is old news. Your kids already use it. Though those things are true, I thought I would throw out how it was used today. This morning I worked with two first grade classrooms. The students had a sheet of paper had several boxes for illustrations and spaces for written text. The students made a how-to draft on this sheet of paper, and used the illustrations for use in StoryKit. Instead of using multiple pieces of paper for publishing, students used Story Kit and took pictures of their illustrations using the iPod touch. Check it out for yourself!
