iPad - Spelling Words Comic Strip

Students Write Sentences using Spelling Words in a Comic Strip

Teachers integrate technology into classroom curriculum by having students use the iPad and a comic strip app to create a one page comic that uses images and spelling words.

Students use a comic strip app on the iPad to create a short comic using their vocabulary spelling words. Students create the comic by using images and then creating sentences that use their spelling words. Students can use the iPad camera to take pictures for the comic or they can find images online. Students save, and share or print.

Grade 2 +



Common Core Standards

Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.

Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach.

Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others.

iPad Spelling Words Comic Strip Finished Example:

Students create a comic in which they use 8 to 16 spelling words to create sentences. Students identify the spelling words by changing the color of the words used. In this example, students were given a list of 24 spelling words to choose from.

The iPad app used here is Strip Designer by Vivid Apps, but similar apps could be used as well.
