perfect. It therefore makes sense to ask ourselves how much our listening
activities demand from students and to evaluate whether we are getting
full benefit from the listening materials we use.

Using “Storybird” in Young Learners’ Creative Writing Class
What I found interesting about Storybird is that it combines art and writing. You are provided with works of art presented in sequence as if they were part of the plot of a story. However, you decide which images to choose, how to order them, and what story you want to tell. That is, after choosing some artwork, you can start writing your story. The site gives you the options of writing a long-form book, a poem, or a picture book.
