How I Use It
Creating a book that each child was able to add to. I had each child draw a picture of themselves and something that wanted to tell their peers about. I scanned the completed artwork and dictation into my computer and added to the book in Book Creator. As part of the app you can record so each child had the opportunity to tell their peers about their page as well. Each child had success with their own page. I am looking forward to getting parents involved so each child will have the opportunity to create their own book.
My Take
I like the ease of use in this app. I can see how it can be used for children to come up with their own books. I plan to use it to enhance all learning areas to support individual students as well as small groups. For example, taking apart a nursery rhyme and changing the rhymes to help identify what rhymes an what does not. Creating your own books opens up so many options.
