StoryBots Classroom offers two types of books. Learning Books are nonfiction stories with page-by-page narration, making them perfect for introducing a lesson, reviewing materials, and independent practice. Starring You Books are animated stories that feature a student’s face and name, creating a highly personalized experience.

The Backpack has two main functions. 1) It’s a great way to keep your favorites or planned activities easily accessible. 2) It gives teachers the ability to curate and share content with parents for free!

The Backpack can hold up to six activities. You can change them as often as you like, but we recommend updating the Backpack at least once a week to help keep students engaged.

Click Invite Parents or to go Settings and click Manage Class to share your unique classroom link with parents. Once a parent uses that link to sign up, they’ll have 100% FREE access to whatever is in your Backpack. It’s great for introducing or reinforcing lessons at home.
