4th Graders Share Comic Style Book Recommendations With The StoryMe App!

Fourth graders have lots of reasons that they love their favorite books and they are happy to share! This week students created their comic style book recommendations using the StoryMe app.  Unfortunately this app has been discontinued, which is such a shame!  It is my all-time favorite comic creation app. As a result, I try to give students as many opportunities to use this app before it no longer works on our iPads.  Students added their comic style book recommendations to their Google Drive for safe keeping. Finally, we use the "Get Shareable Link" option in Google Drive and use the link to create QR codes.  These QR codes are attached to the front corner of these books in our library. Students are always drawn to books that other students recommend!
