This update makes it easier to assign lessons to your students in Book Creator. Just click and share!
Here's an update to make your day easier. In Book Creator, you can now assign a book and each student will get their own editable copy when they sign in. This means you can easily distribute a template book to your class with whatever content and scaffolds are needed and all your students have to do is open Book Creator to get started!
In the past, students would have to manually copy a teacher's book to start working on their own version. Now, this step is removed and a teacher can easily send a template to all of their students at once!
Once you click the Start assignment button, a copy of your book will be made for whichever students you chose to assign it to. Note - these books will appear in your library straight away if your student is already logged in. Otherwise they will appear once the student next joins the library.

Some templates to get started?
The best way to assign books is to share the templates you have created - but don't worry - if you haven't made any templates yet we've got you covered!
You can browse all of the remixable books available in Discover and add them to your library. Take a look here: read.bookcreator.com.

Create your own templates in Book Creator
Don't forget you can remix our templates before you assign them to your learners. That way you can differentiate the content your kids receive.
But if you're feeling more adventurous, feel free to use our template builders to create your own templates!
When you click New Book - switch the tab to the Templates and build page-by-page using our preset themes and content templates.
You can also use the Graphic Organizers app in the App Store in Book Creator. Choose from more than 100 expertly designed graphic organizers, crafted by teachers, to enhance your students' learning experience.
Build templates that allow students to effectively organize and visualize information, plan their writing, solve problems, expand their vocabulary, reflect on their learning journey, and offer constructive feedback to classmates, all while utilizing our platform's multimedia and accessibility features.
Import your own templates
Alternatively, don't forget that if you have your own PDF or Google Slides templates - you can import them into Book Creator using the Import PDF function. That way you can repurpose old lessons and breathe new life into them by making them interactive in Book Creator.
