Student's Illustrate, Record and Publish

Little Bird Tales is a free site that allows teachers and students to create and publish their own digital tales.  Here is what i like about it.

Class Management

  • The has a simple to use teacher interface in which you can setup classes and control access.

  • Teachers manage student accounts.

  •  The teacher assigns usernames and passwords to the students without the requirement of student emails.

  • The teacher controls the privacy and publishing settings


Student Access and Story Creation

  • Students can use the drawing tools to create characters, backgrounds and objects.

  • You can add typed text or record your own narration with the click of a button.

  • Students may import their own pictures. After importing they may use the drawing tools to add to them or annotate them.

  • The site is easy to use and offers a number of options for classroom integration.


The options are limitless with Little Bird Tales. Students may publish a story of all original illustrations and narration or they may develop a presentation about an event, person or curriculum topic. Students may develop bird tales as an enrichment activity. An example would be the assignment to create a tale that describes how to add fractions.
