Online Educational Comics Helping Students Write, Read, Tell Stories I am an author whose books are used in many school programs to encourage children to express themselves through writing. I have just launched a free new web site -- http://www.makebeliefscomix.com -- where students can create their own comic strips.

This website makes learning so much fun. I like the way this site gives you a variety of opinions from characters, emotions, thought bubbles, objects, and scenes. I would use this for students to allow them to get creative. By giving them a specific boundary but allowing them to use their imagination, students will be encourage to write and have fun. This site makes leanguage arts fun for students.
Highly recommend!

I love it. I actually had my students draw their own comic strip with Greeting vocab, but this is great for the artistically impaired. Also something fun to do on the computer.

The site provides a great learning opportunity for students to practice using voice (a component of the 6+1 Writing Traits). It provides students with the opportunity to write a comic that has characters, emotion, and speech bubbles. It also fosters organization in student writing. I think it is a great tool for students to have fun while writing! I love that the end product can be printed and/or e-mailed.

Technical Remarks:

Technically, I think the program is solid. I do wish that there were voice overs on the directions so that younger students could benefit from this great tool too.
