Give student writing purpose and meaning through the creation of eBooks. eBooks make it easy to share student writing projects with a broad audience, helping to engage students and inspire them to produce their best work.
Students can use Wixie to write, illustrate, and record stories and nonfiction. Once students are finished writing, they can share their work online, or export work as an ePub file.
After reading Eric Carle's The Grouchy Butterfly, students published their own story to show their understanding of elapsed time.
After exploring a science or social studies topic in the classroom, ask students to share their new found knowledge by creating their own informational texts. Individual students can write their own books or use an ABC format to create a class eBook.
Put students in the author's seat and encourage narrative writing, by asking them to write and illustrate their own fables.
Poetry's purposeful word choice encourages close, careful reading. Have student demonstrate "understanding of figurative language, word relationships, and nuances in word meanings" by creating visual poems. Print versions are beautiful but eBooks let them record for intonation and fluency.

These first graders were ready to start reading their “All About” books out loud. They recorded themselves on Wixie so they could hear it back! ???? pic.twitter.com/VEiysTnB1h— Mrs. Lamper (@MrsLamper_A) February 17, 2022
My kinders are SO engaged with their @Tech4Learning #Wixie ABC Books! We’re reading different alphabet stories, sounding out words, practicing basic sentence structure and identifying letters on the keyboard. Some are so excited, they work on it at home-for fun! #SharonStrong pic.twitter.com/9WuYSC3NKF— Ginny Daniels, Instructional Media Specialist (@GinnyMoy) February 11, 2022
