Storybird - Reading and writing assignment

Assalamu Alaykom dear parents,

Today in our lab class, I have introduced the online student writing program known as Storybird
Storybird is a way for students to use professional illustrations from thousands of artists as a starting point for story writing. Each student in the class has an account that is registered under my name as the classroom teacher. When they publish stories, they are able to share them within the class and leave feedback for one another. I will also ask students to complete storybird assignments.
Some of my second graders found illustrations and started writing their own stories. There were a few glitches with some of the computers that need to be fixed, but it was wonderful to see everyone using this program for its intended purpose!

You can help your kids login and do their first assignment (read and retell Looking for Hope story). 
This assignment is due in 7 days in sha'Allah.
Their usernames and passwords are attached in the front page of their agendas. I have also asked them to choose a new password and to mark it on the same page.

Jazakom Allah khairan for your cooperation,

Tr. Merve
