To support emergent writers, Kidspiration now includes the powerful Symbol Maker drawing tool. Using a simple interface, students express their creativity and individuality by drawing and painting their own symbols. With one click, students integrate their personalized symbols into graphic organizers, enhancing the ability to communicate visually.
With one simple step, any symbol can become a shape that designates a group. For example, students might place items for "school" into a backpack, rather than a plain circle or box. In this way, the activity becomes more engaging and meaningful.
In Writing View, pictures are now displayed next to corresponding words. This reinforces the relationship between known language and a meaningful image. As always, students can add speech support by choosing to use the Listen tool.
