Stellar App for Writing in Your Classroom
I am very excited to use this app with my students this year! I think they will get a kick out of hearing the prompts read by the recorded voices of other elementary students. The drawings are interesting to look at and the prompts are relevant to an elementary schoolers thinking as well. Tremendous work! I can't wait to see more of what this developer does!
Student friendly! Gr8 writing tool.
If you're looking for a way to get your kids thinking and writing this is it! I wish this APP would have been out there when I was looking for topics each day. Wonderful app for educators and parents.
I'm giving 5 stars!
