Today's Free App of the Day has TONS of creative potential for teachers and parents.
Here's how StoryLines for Schools works:
Player one makes a sentence (using suggested vocabulary words or not). So, they write "My family saw another family walking through the woods."
The device is passed to player two who reads the sentence and draws a picture of what they imagine.
The device then goes to player three, who can only see the image and has to write a sentence looking at the picture drawn by player two. So, let's say player three looks at player two's illustration of "My family saw another family walking through the woods" and decides to write "A pack of bears attacked a family of giant-headed people who were camping."
Player one then has to draw the pack of bears, and it goes on and on (depending on how many turns are set) until everyone gets a big laugh at the end.
I can think of a lot of different ways this could be used for family fun, special needs therapies, etc.
StoryLines for Schools is a game of 'telephone' with pictures. Learn new vocabulary and language concepts that are grade-appropriate, and spark your creativity in a safe, enjoyable manner.
Seriously, that's the whole description. I'm going to have to shoot them an email about that.
