First Grade Book Reviews

In first grade we’ve been working hard on our book review projects. Step one was selecting a just right book and reading it. Step two was to write about what you learned and what you liked about the book. Step three was typing it up in the Book Creator app.

Once students completed their typing, it was time to get creative! Using the Book Creator app, kids designed the layout of their report, decided on background and text colors, decided on the font they liked the best, decided on their text and picture size, and decided on the placement of all these elements on the page.

These are just two of many fantastic examples that show students using their iPads to display their learning in a new, exciting, and creative way!
