Why Publish a Book With Your Class
There is nothing more gratifying than to see your students excited to learn. When you publish a book with your class, you’ll watch your students’ faces light up as they become published authors and create a professionally bound book just like they would find in the library. This free classbook publishing project is a unique experience that will get your students excited about writing and inspire their best effort.
Turn your students into a team of writers and illustrators as you walk them through the journey to becoming real published authors.
It’s more than just a book… your class publishing project:
- Motivates students to do their best work
- Makes teaching writing easy and fun
- Inspires creativity and hands-on learning
- Encourages teamwork and collaboration
- Teaches perseverance and showcases student progress
- Creates a treasured keepsake
- Builds a sense of pride and accomplishment
- Strengthens the home to school connection
