Tool Cinco!!!!
This tool "Big Huge Labs" would be great to use to create illustrations to go with stories written by students. I think the kids would have a blast making magazine covers, comic captions to pictures, or movie posters too!

I also went to MixBook to create a compilation of photos.  This would be wonderful for creating a children's storybook (as an assessment) incorporating literary terms and devices. Or we could use this comic book captions to utilize onomatopoeias. . .
Tool Quattro:
I posted a document for review- I hope that people are able to edit and add their input. . . I know that it is going to help to collaborate and share with peers.
Tool 3
Using this video, we can tackle figurative language bit by bit in an engaging way!

I have started to follow several blogs.  I like getting ideas from others- teachers are the best thieves and the possibilities are endless!  Cool Language Arts blog I want to follow!
