Teach 21: Kid’s Book Blog
This project involved students in reading, responding and collaborating about books that they have read in their free time. This Blog has been in existence for 3 years and the group of 5th graders that are highlighted in this video are just learning how to add their original posts to the Blog. In addition to book reviews entered by genre, the Kids Book Blog has author study podcasts, Digital Storytelling Summaries, PowerPoint Games Shows, Online Book Clubs and links for readers.
