What is Storybird?
Storybirds are short, art-inspired stories you make to share, read, and print. Read them like books, play them like games, and send them like greeting cards. They’re curiously fun.

Is a Storybird just digital?
You can certainly share your work online. With Storybird, keep your work secure and private on the Storybird website. Or, you can share it publicly on the Storybird site. You can also embed the Storybird onto a class site or blog, and you can share the link on Facebook or Twitter. Simply put - you can make your work as public or private as you'd like.
Teachers - you can set up student accounts, too. Additionally, after a student has finished creating their work, they can integrate their reading strategies by adding an 'about the author' page, story summary, tags (key words for their story - main idea), and more!
Students can even use the Storybird website as a safe place to comment on each other's work.
I really like that I can purchase my daughter's Storybird creations. As a parent, I can get the link from her teacher and choose to purchase a hardcopy of her book. The best part, if you choose to purchase a hardcopy, your child's classroom gets $5 for the purchase. The hardcover books are so beautiful and special.
