In the Classroom

Use Cloud Dreamer as a creative story starter based on cloud shapes. Take a screenshot of the clouds to use as illustrations with student writing (Shift+command +4 on a Mac or Prtscrn then paste on Windows). Have students describe and imagine what is happening in the field below. Or create a story from the cloud's or cow's perspective. Combine their cloud stories into a PowerPoint show -- printable as a big book -- or online book using a tool such as Bookemon, reviewed here. After viewing and creating clouds with Cloud Dreamer, take your class outside to view clouds floating by and create stories from clouds they see overhead. Use this opportunity to teach young students about the different types of clouds.
