Create your own stories with Storybird taking inspiration from illustrations and piecing them together to make your own online book. Once books have been moderated you can embed them straight into your blog.
Individual and Teacher/Class accounts are available for free and the usual ‘extra options’ are available to purchase.
This is a great way to inspire children to write, letting the pictures tell the story.
This is a competition run by Makewaves and to enter you’ll need to have a Makewaves blog – but this is free to set up.
Kids aged 5-11 are being asked to share their favourite read in any way they choose. Write something, draw something, blog it, film it. Whatever they like. The idea is that they aren’t reviewing their book, they’re recommending it.
Once children have created their entry, they upload it to their Makewaves blog and share it with the world.
Prizes include an e-reader for the pupil and a 12 month pro-account with Makewaves for their school. The competition closes on Tuesday 16 April 2013.
