My Story Maker is a tool that helps kids write their own stories. Each story begins by asking the name of the student creating the story and what main character they would like to use from a list of pre-created characters. Add characters and objects to the storyboard, and click them to add actions. As they add each element, a basic story is written in which the user than enhances by choosing the different actions, objects, and settings for each page.
