ABC Books with Story

Story has quickly become a very popular app amongst teachers. Students can quickly create a high quality presentation or digital book with the app. It allows the user to put in pictures, captions, and full pages of text within the book.

Here is an example that Mrs. Yoder had her first graders build. For several days, the students collaborated and built a list of animals for each letter of the alphabet. Mrs. Yoder sent the list to me and I used Morgue File to gather royalty-free photographs. I then sent her about four or five letters worth of pictures to her so that she could forward them to her students. (Yes, teachers can email fairly large amounts of photos to students. In this project, I was able to send 26 pictures.) The first graders downloaded the images to their camera roll, imported them into the Story project, and if students had additional time, they added facts about animals.

There was one little hiccup though. Mrs. Yoder quickly found out toward the end of the project that the user can only make twenty two-page spreads. So to solve that problem, Mrs. Yoder had students use Pic Collage to cluster together the last few animals.

Here is the direct link to the Story example by Lauren.
