Day 59 - We've Published Our First Book! Irene Farmer, Francis Wyman Elementary School

This post originally appeared on Ms. Farmer's Blog 

Below you can view our very first published book!  Each child brainstormed and chose a favorite moment from the farm field trip.  They then wrote, revised, illustrated and published a short three-page story with a beginning, middle and end.  Final drafts were typed into the Book Creator App on their iPads. 

Upon finishing their writing, the children then went onto their iPads and created illustrations to go with their words on the Drawing Pad app.  Their artwork was saved to their camera roll and then uploaded into their Book Creator app.  The individual books were then compiled into one big class book.

Take a moment to look at the book here.  Have your child read his/her entry to you personally!

Below are some photos of the class drafting their stories, editing them and publishing them onto their iPads:
