05 Feb Create online books with Scribble Press! Free and easy.
#literacy #writing
I just checked out Scribble Press and was so delighted. It’s a great publisher that is perfect for kids. 
The easy to use interface allows you to use your own images (students artwork!) or use a variety of stickers they provide. Students need to type in their text in a text box that is clearly defined for each page. Text can be copied and pasted from another source also.
Teachers can create group accounts so students can share books with each other. How nice is that.
There is also an equally nice iPad version.
No registration required to create a book. Final product can be viewed online, downloaded as a pdf and printed or purchased as a hard cover book.

 Awesome!
Registration is required to save and share books. Fast and easy with e-mail address. Books can be created without registration but can not be saved. Well worth the registration.
I tried this out and found it easy to use. You can upload your own images or use images they provide. I think this is an excellent “book making” tool that students will be able to use quickly. Very student friendly!

Youblisher-“Pageflip” Book Generator

I recently “stumbled upon"  Youblisher, a site where my students can create FREE “pageflip” ebooks and embed them on our class website without distracting or inappropriate advertising.   I have been looking for a site like this for a long time.  It’s quick and easy to use.  I signed up for a free account immediately and was on my way in a minute.  All you do is upload a pdf file to their website. (I created a word doc. and saved it as a pdf file.) The website does the rest. You then get the embed code to share it on your website.  The finished product has the page curl and that great “pageflip” sound students love. There are also several ways to turn the pages including using your scroll wheel.  I am so excited that my students will now be able to create great ebooks, emagazines, etc., and we can showcase them on our website, in our new Virtual Library.  They also make it easy to print your ebooks.   Wow…This is almost to good to be true! And did I mention that along with all of this they offer free assistance and support. I highly recommend Youblisher.  Two huge thumbs up from me!!!
