In the book A Letter From Your Teacher On the First Day of School by Shannon Olsen, a teacher writes a heart-warming letter to her students sharing all of the things she is looking forward to in the upcoming school year. Students will use the StoryboardThat Creator to illustrate "Three Thrilling Things" that they are looking forward to this year! For example: making new friends, a book or project they're excited about, a school play, or a game they love to play in P.E. Student storyboards can be shown on a screen and shared with their classmates as well as printed and hung around the room!
