How I Use It
I absolutely love using Book Creator with my kinders. I use it in small group as a way to deepen their understanding of the unit we are working on. I especially like using this app for PBLs and class books. I am looking forward to using it with GLAD this upcoming year.
I am surprised that this app is recommended for students starting in third grade. With guidance, this app is appropriate for all ages. It does take time for students to master, however, working at a Title I school has shown me that as early as 5, students can use the app with practice. My students love creating new stories, designing classroom stories to share with others, and collaborating in small groups. I used the app this last year to create books for our PBL on technology and am looking forward to incorporating our GLAD units.
