Guest Poster, Leah Fullenkamp: Book Creator App

Hello everyone!  I'm Leah from the blog Learn With Leah.  I wanted to take soem time and show you one of my new favorite apps- Book Creator.  It is a $4.99 app but it is well worth the price!  This app allows for the quick and easy creation of ebooks- in my district, all of the fourth grade students created an ebook.  I love this app because it is so easy to use!  Within minutes they had hit the ground running.




I started with these basic planning pages so the students knew what they wanted to write before we started.  There are six different story mapping pages- you can snag them here!  This worked really well because they had there plan together and could really focus on making their story come alive.


Within the app, you can insert photos from the photo roll, text, drawings, videos, songs and voice recordings.   Everything can be moved, resized and rearranged quickly with the tap of your finger.   The pure simplicity of this is astonishing to me!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE when the technology takes a back seat and the joy of learning and creating take a front seat.  This is exactly what this app does!


Finished books can be printed, sent to iBooks with a quick tap, saved as a pdf or sent to dropbox.  I am so in love with this app and I hope that you will love it too!

Thanks to everyone here at All Things Upper Elementary for allowing me to guest post!!!
