Take a look at our story on the ‘Storybird’ website

We had a visitor to our room this week. Her name was Aisling. Aisling is doing voluntary work in the school. She is thinking about becoming a teacher.

Happily after her week in Room 6 Aisling seems even more enthusiastic about teaching 🙂 Aisling completed a great body of work in our class this week.

In Art she helped the children with the construction of their names as seen earlier this week on Photopeach.

Then she worked with each child on a collaborative story on the website called ‘Storybird’.

As described on the ‘Storybird’ site, ‘Storybird reverses the process of visual storytelling by starting with the image and “unlocking” the story inside’. The children choose an artist or a theme and base their stories on the pictures.

Unsurprisingly, the children chose the theme of ‘Halloween’! We have published these stories online.

If you like to read the story with your child, they will tell you which page they wrote.

Room Six and their teacher would like to thank Aisling for all her hard work 🙂

If your child enjoys story writing you might consider signing up for a ‘Storybird’ account. To do so is free.
Though as with many of these sites, there is a ‘Pro’ option which you would pay for.
