Creative Writing #13: An African Storybook Project Report back from Stirling Primary in East London

Here is another class hard at work creating stories for the African Storybook Project.  I have written about the African Storybook Project in a number of posts. The website is hopefully going live in July with stories written by South Africa teachers. If you would like your class to write stories suitable for Grade 3 students across Africa to read, please submit them by 21 June and use the guidelines found in this post. There’s still time to submit a story suitable for a Grade 3 reader for the African Storybook project. Join us!

"We are finally finished writing all the stories and I am nearing the end of
the editing.  We will be using Story Jumper to illustrate our stories and
then we will snip the pictures to use them in our PowerPoint shows.  My children
are so  enjoying Story Jumper.  In fact, my class today asked if they could
stay in at break and carry on! That says it all don't you think?  Still
quite a way to go, but so far so good... Thank you."


These are photos of the Grade 3s at work with their stories.
