Maybe a new tradition for every year??? A Day In My Life: Birthday Interview. I like that its simple questions, like the handprint too. And this idea could be used for all ages - NOT just kindergarten!
In my experience, one of the most difficult age groups to find books for is 11 to 14 years old. For young teens and pre-teens, also known “tweens,” finding books can be tricky. As kids start to outgrow much of the independent reader section of the bookstore, heading to the Young Adult section might seem like a great choice. Unfortunately, some teen fiction often deals with very dark subject matter and is better suited to high school-aged teens.
We read books and then created book trailers using Movie Maker! There were so many standards met in this engaging reading (technology) project! Read about it and get the free download (with Rubric) to get started!!
