Storybird is an online social platform for storytelling. Students act as authors, pairing their words with site-curated, licensed art. Students must use Storybird’s curated collection in their picture books and illustrated poems.
After signing up or logging in with teacher-provided credentials, students can read published stories or create their own. They can repost favorite stories to their own Storybird account feeds, “heart” stories they like, and comment on them. Students can explore what their classmates have written in the class library or click on the Read tab to browse stories using a variety of filters. When students are ready to create their own, there are three possibilities: picture books, long form (think chapter book), and poetry.
