"My grade 5s recently finished up a unit on narrative writing. The culminating activity was to turn a nursery rhyme into a narrative and then create a picture book. A real one. Made out of bristol board and paper.
I chose one group to convert their book into an e-book using Book Creator. The three girls found the app very intuitive to use. They used the iPad to take pictures of each page of the book. They cropped the photos using the iPad's photo app before laying out the photos on separate pages. They quickly figured out how to record themselves reading each page. We didn't get too fancy with the recording. They worked in a fairly noisy hallway using the built in microphone. The results were pretty good. "
