2Create a Story is a wonderful thing

Feb. 1, 2021

Following on from last month's Mash of the Month, here is more about the amazing tool 2Create a Story.

2Create a Story allows children to create their own multimedia digital storybooks. There are three modes of 2Create a Story: My Simple Story, My Story and My Adventure Story. With these modes, you are able to put together amazing creative writing activities that can be used for cross-curricular activities and tie in all learning areas when working through a common theme.
