Google has acquired one of my favorite storytelling apps and it is now FREE (was $9.99) If you don’t already own this app grab it and get those kids creating. Listed below are a few posts I have made previously about the app and you can read about the announcement here.

Toontastic is an amazing app for storytelling in the classroom. The basic app is free and has plenty to offer a classroom but I know you will want to get the “all access pass” once you play with it some. In the video I mention a Martin Luther King lesson and you can find more info on that here.
Storytelling or apps or creating are the most powerful and I have a list of my 33 favorites here, several with example lessons.
Write About This ($3.99) is a great app for writing and storytelling. Please add questions or concerns in the comments.
