Free tools to create comic strips Creating cartoons and comic strips for educational uses can be quite interesting task. It obviously pushes the reluctant students to participate more and rub the dust off their brains. Students love to work in groups and compete with each other especially when there are motivating incentives for them. One of these incentives is the integration of comic strips into parts of your lesson.

Printable letters: Letters activities: B We’ve all heard of that magical child who comes out of the womb reading, but the reality is that reading readiness starts at a young age. Simply exposing your child to letters as part of a fun coloring activity can help them to learn some of the building blocks they’ll need to read. Educators remind us time and again that parents are their child’s first teacher. While this doesn’t mean you have to devote hours to teaching and coaching your little guy or gal, every bit helps. Giving kids the opportunity to practice recognizing and sounding out letters while coloring them in can make them feel more comfortable as they learn to read in school. Learning letters at home will also help to instill a love of reading in your child, which we bookworms know is a gift they can enjoy for the rest of their life.

10 Ways to Create Comics Online Creating cartoons and comic strips can be a good way to get reluctant writers writing. While creating comics you and your students can work through the elements of fiction in a context that is fun and familiar to them. Witty Comics provides a simple platform that students can use to create two character dialogues. To use Witty Comics students just need to select the pre-drawn background scenes and the pre-drawn characters they want to feature in their comics. Writing the dialogues is the creative element that is left to the students. Artisan Cam is more than just a comic creator, it is a comprehensive collection of online art activities.

There are obviously many more uses out there for them – but that is a discussion for another post. We’ve mentioned most of these before – in a post from way back when – so I won’t go into too much detail about each individual one, but we’ve added a few notable ones to the list. (Of note, the list is in no particular order). The vast majority of them work the same: plug your text into the box, select a few options, and you’ve got yourself a word cloud.
