    Thank you for the great ideas. I love using Toontastic in my primary classrooms. Launchpad Toys has recently put up the characters as well as most of the backgrounds as printable PDFs. I like using these to help students practice their stories. Also it helps a lot when we have only a small number of iPads.

    Thank you
