PicLits Literacy tool

Use this free drag and drop literacy tool to create great sentences inspired by beautiful pictures. "Learn It" provides learning opportunities and examples on creating captions, compound sentences, or paragraphs. Advanced lesson plans for teachers are viewed in the "Learn It" tab as well. "View the Gallery" to see created PicLits as well as comments and ratings. After dragging a word onto the screen, choose different forms of the word by using the drop-down menu next to the word. Registration is required to use this site but a "global class" account can be created for all students to use. Here is an example PicLit that I created:

Thanks for the Kudos regarding PicLits.com.
I don't want to sound dumb, but where is Punxsutawney School District?
How do I reach the rest of district in order to let them know about PicLits? It is specifcally design for language arts teachers. We like to call it adrenlin for creative writing. As you can see in the "LEARN IT" section, it also has plenty of opprotunities to teach grammart, vocabulary, punctuation, spelling etc.
I would appreciate your feedback and suggestions.
thanks in advance
