Forget about the way you completed Mad Libs as a child – there’s an app for that! The official Mad Libs app offers 21 free stories that can be used to reinforce literacy skills. Have students identify parts of speech and create their own fill in the blank story.

There are so many great apps to have students practice storytelling and here’s another I love. Pirate Scribble by Kidoodle is more than just a coloring book. Students create pictures that correspond to a story that is told in sequence. It’s a great way to reinforce literacy skills while allowing students the opportunity to be creative.

This free app acts like the magnetic words you might have on your refrigerator. Created by the National Council of Teachers of English, Wordmover allows students to manipulate words on their screen. Choose from the list they’ve provided and add your own words to create phrases, sentences or poems. I think this app would be perfect for a poetry station or a challenge activity for fast finishers.
