Welcome everyone!

Welcome everyone! | Comicsforkids | Scoop.it

Welcome to Clare's SCOOP on Comics for Kids. Here you will find lots of ideas and links to all things to do with reading, enjoying and creating your own comics.

 

I have also included links to Safe Searching websites, fact and image finders to help you find content for your comics.

 

Please Note: all the actual web pages that are linked to here are suitable for children. However, other parts of the website might need adult supervision. For example, creating your own comic strip using an online comic maker is fine but if you go to the gallery or showcase on that same website you may see other comics made by other people that you don't like the look of. Usually you have to create an account and log in to see the gallery or showcase and you would need an email address to do this - IF IN ANY DOUBT - PLEASE ASK AN ADULT for ADVICE - simple! :-)

 

Have fun!!

Speechable - Easy to add your own speech bubbles to any image

Speechable - Easy to add your own speech bubbles to any image | Comicsforkids | Scoop.it
Speechable is a free photo service that lets you easily upload photos or pictures and add speech bubbles, captions and doodles to them and share them with friends via email or on Facebook, MySpace, Orkut, blogs, and message boards.
talkPrimaryICT's insight:

Add a captivating or informative speech bubble to a picture from your computer or that you find (legally) online. Make the picture private and share with others or add to the gallery. Brilliant and simple!

talkPrimaryICT's curator insight, February 19, 2013 5:51 PM

Create your own LEGO style avatars here for free. Really useful for PSHE activities - your character can say how they 'feel' about things. Use in comics, for creative writing, make into puppets, for art projects or display and good for disguising online identities.

At Digger and the Gang there are three comic templates so children can simply click on each speech bubble to write their own words. Text needs to be short - about 20/30 letters max. Some frames are clickable so you can change the image. Stories are about an underwater, jungle or city adventure. You don't need to register/log in, and you can print out your creation.

Cookit Creator - Cookit! | Comicsforkids | Scoop.it

The Cookit creator provides a fun way of creating a recipe and showing how it is cooked, using a 'cartoon like environment'. It allows students to create their own recipes frame by frame in a kitchen and using a chef of their choice. In the kitchen, the colour of the worktops, fridge and floors can all be modified.

The Cookit creator is very intuitive; however, full instructions on its use can be downloaded from the site.

Heroes and Heroines Comic by Southwark Gifted and Talented 2012 | Comicsforkids | Scoop.it

Check out this amazing comic created by 20 hard working children as part of Excellence in Southwark's Gifted & Talented programme.

 

The children chose, researched and drew a character from the past. Then using 'Comic Life' software they created these FANTASTIC comic strips about their character's lives and exploits!

 

Thank you to Pauline Hinchliffe (Excellence in Southwark) and WELL DONE to everyone who took part in the course for your hard work - the comic looks GREAT :-)
