Story-Making Machine
Your students can have fun writing and reading stories using this unique writing opportunity! This may especially catch the interest of those students who show no interest in writing. Use the Story-Making Machine for classroom story-writing assignments by choosing the option of having no target sounds highlighted. Include the title, author's first name and grade, or add a picture if you wish. Print them, or, if you choose to submit stories, I will publish them on the Story-Making page of this website for parents or other students to enjoy and practice. If you want to reinforce target sounds for your students on articulation IEPs, you can have specific target sounds highlighted, helping them remember to use good speech when reading a story out loud.
