Design and share high-quality comic strips using the many free templates from Canva's Comic Strip Templates. Choose from numerous colorful designs in various formats, including single strips or comics with multiple frames. Begin by using the dropdown box to find free templates, narrow choices by color if desired. After selecting a template, choose the link to customize. Each template includes several pages that form a complete cartoon, a blank frame, and illustration sets to enter with your design. The share option offers the ability to share creations with others and allow them to edit the comic. When complete, download your finished cartoon to your device as a PDF file or PDF, JPG, or GIF image.

tag(s): comics and cartoons (41), graphic design (46)

In the Classroom

Engage students by using the templates to display the day's vocabulary word, the math puzzle of the week, a concept your students are learning in social studies or science as an example, and engage students. Have students create comic strips for dialog-writing lessons, summarizing, predicting, and retelling stories. Use comic strips for literature responses. For pre-reading students, create a comic of pictures and tell the story based on the pictures/scenes. It's a good idea to require students to create a rough draft of their comic using Printable Comic Strip Templates, reviewed here. Make a class book of the comics created throughout the year. That book is likely to become a class favorite! Use comics to show sequencing of events. When studying characterization, create a dialog to show (not tell) about a character. World language and ENL/ESL teachers can assign students to create dialog strips as an alternate to a traditional assessment. Have students share all of their comics on your interactive whiteboard or projector.

WittyWe is an online learning portal for students in grades K-9. It includes content in many topic areas, including entrepreneurship, personal life skills, media, and STEM. Some of the content requires a paid subscription; instead, take advantage of the free 90-day membership, or look for activities with the "free" banner on the thumbnail icon. Most activities include a short video lesson accompanied by a quiz, challenge activity, and summary of the task.

Use the activities found in WittyWe to provide instruction in content not typically covered in all curriculums. For example, assign activities related to entrepreneurship to complete during computer centers or include free lessons about the law as part of civics lessons. Share links to free lessons using Symbaloo, reviewed here, for easy access by students. Include a link to your Symbaloo on your class website for students to access at home. Supplement your current lessons with those found on WittyWe using a learning management system such as TES Teach Blendspace, reviewed here. Include the free activities from this site along with videos, quizzes, and additional articles of your choosing.

This tool is especially useful when multiple teachers are involved or when parents may not reside in the same location. Connect whole classrooms across the country for book clubs. Collaborate with experts such as authors and scientists with classrooms of children. Create connected learning experiences with other students, especially those in older grades. Connect world language classes to classes in other countries. Teachers can hold "office hours" for homework help and asking questions. Create a collaborative space for homework help before or after school or on snow days. Students can meet whenever help is needed, or teachers can create a session that can be accessed on any device easily by those who need it. Use Icebreaker for group work - no more excuses about not meeting for cooperative learning projects! Buildings can collaborate and share professional development with others in their own district and beyond!

Of all the tools that you can put in your blended learning toolkit, the playlist is one that you don't want to miss. As a result of this session, teachers will: 1. Understand the purpose of instructional playlists; 2. Learn how using playlists can support student voice and choice; and 3. Begin planning an instructional playlist. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
