Book Creator: Create, Read and Publish

Book Creator
Create, Read, and Publish

Students who are developing literacy skills need daily opportunities to use/practice with letters, select words from their AAC systems, read books of their own choice, and write for authentic purposes and audiences.  Book Creator is a great tool for this.  Here are a few websites from those who use Book Creator with students who have complex communication and emergent literacy instructional needs.
