Last February, I shared a site with you that allows you to create your own comic strips by selecting from 10 characters with different moods. Then, you can write your own words into thought balloons or use the siteâ€™s story guides. You can read that post here.
The sites creator, Bill Zimmerman recently wrote to let us know of about an update to the site. He wrote:
A year ago, when we first launched our comic strip generator –
www.MakeBeliefsComix.com — you were among the first to give us your
support and encouragement for providing a useful educational resource
for homeschooling, ESOL and literacy students.
We have just upgraded the site to enable users to also write their
comics in Spanish as well as in English — a request made by many
educators — and we have added more fun characters in response to user
suggestions. Since the site was launched more 150,000 educators in
more than 150 countries are using our free resource to encourage
writing, reading and literacy.
I hope you will try out our new features and share them with the
children in your life. They are so much fun!
All good wishes to you for the new year, and thank you again for your
