Primary and elementary students create storybooks using word processing activities. Storybook templates make learning word processing skills easy for young writers. They illustrate, write, edit, and publish stories. Upon completion, authors share their work during story time. Optional activities challenge students with keyboarding tasks, advanced word processing techniques, and the creation of a flipbook. Story writing for kids is easy with Google Docs or Microsoft Word templates.

Great program that I used with my first grade classes. They like the easy to read books and inserting their own clip art. Worked it into the English class as they practiced writing their own sentences for their story. Great resource!
