Dual-language resources for bilingual children and parents
and for the multi-lingual classroom
FREE Download to your PC, Apple, IPAD, Android or your smart phone.
YOUCreate is a fantastically diverse software that enables both children and teachers to make their own talking products. From books to posters, calendars, and maps, YOUCreate reaches right across the curriculum and is a great resource for individual or group work.
The software is extremely simple to use and is downloadable to both Mac and PC, and the new Mobile version for tablets and smartphones enables you to make posters within 2 to 5 minutes.
Click on 'Mobile Version', select your pre-set design and you will be taken directly into the programme. No need for downloading, installing, or registering; just add your text and images. Each publication you make will have its unique 'Start Arrow'. (Start Arrow is the equivalent of an ISBN number, so now your book will be identifiable with the Start Arrow.)
Add your own audio, text, images - there is no limit to your creativity, and every project will be individual to you and your class. Why not record the preparations for your class' Harvest Festival in a book? Or make a Talking Map to show where your class has been on holiday?
This is to show you the Ranvilles School's 'Finding Fin' talking picture book, which is available in English and Fijian audio. The book is illustrated, written, and compiled by staff and children at the school under the guidance of Chris Pim, using our free YouCreate software. It is an excellent achievement, and Mantra will be publishing American Spanish, Arabic, and Yoruba editions.
If you wish to make your own talking book, be it fictional or reference, please contact us.
YouCreate not only enables you to make personalised talking resources, but you can also choose to customise a range of pre-made publications should you prefer. Teachers can even create dual language books for EAL learners, or rewrite stories in any language as a useful MFL resource. Then, with the uniqe Start Arrow and the free 'CreateLINK' software, you can easily add audio. Tap with PENpal and listen to your voice from your book.
Children at both KS2 and KS3 level will benefit from being able to combine a number of skills, from writing concisely to editing images, narrating audio, and sound editing. This also makes all your YouCreate products an effective assessment tool.
There is even the option of creating an e-version of any publications you make. Easily send files by email to share your special memories as a class, from school trips to projects and assemblies.
Scroll through below to see examples of some of the fantastic resources that have been made. Each publication is unique and completely customisable to your class.
TALKING CLASS POSTERS
Simply download the easy to use software, choose your format, (books, calendars, posters etc.), add your own pictures and text in any language, and have it printed with the sound spots in place. This will enable PENpal to play back your recordings within your publication.
Parents can order YouCreate products too, to keep a record of their child's work. Parents order, pay by credit card, and the book is delivered directly to them. A 20 page sound enabled softback full colour book would cost £15.00 of which £0.50 goes to your school. You won't have to deal with the problems of delivery or collecting payments.
