Are you looking to start a technology project in your classroom that could excite your students, cause your principal to promote you to teacher of the year, and make the librarian love you forever and ever? :)
Have I got the solution for you... Book Trailers.
Alright, I may have used a hyperbole. But, it will create excitement in your students and it will create a desire to read! What more could a teacher want (besides longer summer breaks, a raise, and well-behaved parents/students)?
So if you are super excited about this idea... you could read all about it on my blog, The Owl Teacher.
When you head there, and read about it, you'll also find a freebie that contains everything you need to get started.
You'll find the information page that I provided parents with. You'll find the details of how I put it all together and made it work. You'll also find a rubric to grade your students' book trailers that looks like this below.
This is also perfect for reading month. Aren't you excited!?!?
PS - No, I didn't have too much coffee today. Okay, maybe a little.
