Creating eBooks: Students as readers, authors, and designers

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.

Adapt a Favorite Story

After reading Eric Carle's The Grouchy Butterfly, students published their own story to show their understanding of elapsed time.

Create Your Own Informational Texts

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.

Fabulous Fables

Put students in the author's seat and encourage narrative writing, by asking them to write and illustrate their own fables.

Publish Visual Poetry

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.
