Over the past few weeks, students in 4th grade have been writing iBooks using the app Book Creator. This app has so many features, including the ability to open finished books in the iBooks app. However, this time we took it one step farther. Students (with parent permission, of course) had the option to try and publish their finished creations to the actual iBook store. The story, Wolves Win the Game, was the first to be accepted.
