Create a story following these steps. 

Step 1: Look through the picture pallet to develop a theme for your story.  Pick a picture to begin and drag it onto the slide. Start to write your story. Remember to write complete sentences that start with a capital and end with punctuation. Add a space after each sentence.

Step 2: Think about the sequence of events in your story. What comes first, then what happens after that, and how do things change because of what happened before?

Step 3: Use descriptive words to create sentences that show what is happening in your story. 

Step 4: When you are done, publish your Storybird to the library.  Then, read other stories from the class library and post positive comments to your classmates.
