Create books to practise writing Back to list

Get your pupils creating their own paper and online story books.

The great thing about asking children to create their own books is that it involves ownership, a powerful tool in teaching and learning. Both print and online versions are always winners because they engage the child, requiring him/her to make decisions over content, layout and design.

Have a look at the links below to help your students create their own mini-books!
