LUV, LUV, LUV THEIR DEVICES;
HELP THEM COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR WORDS!
Here’s some ways to use these new characters in your comic stories:
- Fill in thought balloons to convey what the digital enthusiasts are thinking as they write or read.
- Have them keep digital diaries of their lives – what happened to them today? (Maybe one of them represents you.)
- What important email or text message did they just receive or send? Fill in a talk balloon with the message.
- Create a story for them to tell, or a joke for them to share.
- What are they searching for on the Internet? What new thing did they learn today?
- Are they writing or receiving words of hope, words of love, words of anger, words of surprise, words of sadness? Write their words in thought or talk balloons.
- Place pairs of digital enthusiasts together in your comic as they exchange thoughts.
We welcome your own creative ideas to use digital enthusiasts. Send them to email@example.com and if you give us permission we’ll add them to the list.
We hope you will enjoy this new Comic Starters feature. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your own ideas.
To share and display your creations in our Comix Gallery, send them to email@example.com, along with a note giving us permission. Also, build your own Comic Art Portfolio by saving your comic strips online with us (click on SIGN IN TO SAVE ONLINE button on Create Comix! page), or by printing or emailing your comix to yourself to include in your own personal portfolio. You'll take pride in what you will have accomplished at the end of the school term!
Remember, you can use the FLIP command in the tool bar box on the Create Comix! page to switch a character to look to the other direction – this way two characters can face one another.
If you are a student learning new vocabulary, after you fill in your talk or thought balloon why not read OUT LOUD what you wrote? That's a great way to practice using the new words!
