This website, launched by author and journalist Bill Zimmerman, offers a perfect demonstration that playing is learning.

It’s easy, fun, and educational to create your own comic strips! Visitors who use this interactive comic strip “game” will simultaneously practice and improve their language arts skills including, reading, writing, spelling, and creative thinking. Young and old, and everyone in between, will enjoy arranging these cartoon characters and putting words into their mouths.

To get started right away, click on “Create Your Comix!” Then select: 

  • Characters
  • Masks
  • Balloons & Prompts
  • Greeting Cards
  • Words
  • Objects
  • Backgrounds
  • Background Color

If you like, you can make your comic strip up to 9 panels long. But here’s the best part: you get to decide what to write in the word or thought balloons that accompany your comics. It’s amazing what children can write when it’s this much fun!

On the  top menu bar, under “Create Comix!”, you’ll find detailed instructions on how to create your comic along with story ideas. There are quite a few story starters, including Travel to a Mysterious Place, A Day at School, Finding Your Courage, and many more!

After you have created your comics, you can print them out. Assemble them into a book, display them on your wall, or use them to create your own greeting cards. You can even email them to a friend and to yourself. And don’t forget to send a copy to Grandma.

Also, be sure to check out the many Language Arts resources under “Writing”, “Teachers”, “Parents”, and more from the top menu.
