Tikatok Example

I have been exploring Tikatok some more. I really like how user friendly the site is for young students. After students pick a topic, they can start adding text to the text boxes. Some pages have sentence starters and suggestions for what to add. Many of my students struggle with writing and always tell me I don't know what to write. After typing, they can add pictures by clicking on the box and selecting a picture. Students click on an arrow to move ahead or back. After students finish their books, they can save and preview the book in a pdf.

I have added a few screen shots of a book I started to make to show the step by step process.
I am planning on sharing this site with my teammates and sending a parent consent form home so that we can get started on creating storybooks.
