How Students Can Create Their Own Digital Books Online

By Beth Newingham on February 14, 2013
  • Grades: 3–5

Students can actually create their own digital books that can be viewed online using a great FREE program called Microsoft Photo Story 3 for Windows. Students can create stories in any genre and make them come alive using this software program.

The program allows students to create slide shows using actual photographs or scanned pictures of their own illustrations. Students then add their own voices so that they are reading their story aloud as the corresponding pictures come up in the slide show. In this way, students are also practicing fluent reading. The author can also add text and music. If you are in a building that uses Windows, this program is simple and easy to use, even for my 3rd graders!

See some really creative examples from some students in Georgetown, Kentucky.
