Prior to writing, students can organize their ideas by using this tool. Students with special needs may have difficulty with expressing their ideas through writing or verbalizing what a story is about, Popplet could be used to assist these students in those areas. It is a different way for them to express their ideas. They can use the pictures or draw their own pictures about a story or a writing assignment.
