Using Storia with Your Students

Storia is an eReading app that some of our teachers have been using in their classes.

One of our first grade teachers at White River started using this app last year.  This is what she has to say about using it with her students:

Storia is a great app from Scholastic that is a free and links to your book club account. There's many features on it and it's easy to use.  Plus you get 5 free books for downloading the app. In my 1st grade classroom, I set up one classroom bookshelf for students to choose from.  You can set up bookshelves for each student that allow you to track what the students are reading.

When you purchase one book, or use your book club points, it is available on all of your devices that sync together. Stories have different features, from beginning readers that have a read to me option to chapter books.  Other stories come with options such as, vocabulary questions, highlighting, vocabulary explanations, and so on.

It is a very engaging app that the students love to use.
