Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper
(Trailer Created by Fourth Grade Readers Milana)
*Milana is such a fun reader to work with. She doesn't "like" to find her own books, and this is something we are working on. What she does like is when a book "stack" is presented to her and she can choose from that collection.
*During a recent "stack" discussion she and I had, she picked this book out of the pile, began reading, and had a very hard time putting the book down. One of my most favorite things to witness in a reader.
*Our goal is to create a book trailer a week that we can share with our classmates.
*We are collecting all the trailers we make and putting them into our Schoology Site.
*Each student will have their own album where they can keep all of their trailers. Then the other readers will be able to browse those trailers and find a new book to read.
*As the year progresses we will learn what should be included, and not included, in the trailer to make them the best they can be.
