Little Bird Tales

For several years we have done a podcast project in 4th grade where the kids record the stories they write during the realistic fiction unit. As technology has changed and applications have evolved, we've changed several things along the way. This year, we went in an entirely new direction and decided to create our "podcasts" online using a website called Little Bird Tales.

SO GREAT! A major challenge when integrating technology into projects, especially with young students, is the amount of time it takes to learn the skills necessary to complete the task. Little Bird Tales is so easy to use, kids were able to start creating their stories within 3 minutes of logging in for the first time. 
  1. Write your title.
  2. Draw a picture.
  3. Record your voice.
  4. Save.
  5. Next page opens automatically.
That's it! 

Here they are, our first LBTs for you to see/hear.
