Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk
(Student-Created Trailers by Mr. Andrus' Fourth Grade Readers)
*One of my goals this year to promote reading, books, and literacy was to expose my readers to the idea of "trailers".
*Our most recent read aloud was Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk. I share this novel with my fourth graders during our historical fiction unit. It fit perfectly and I was able to point out so many elements of historical fiction while reading the story to my students.
*After we finished the book, I asked some of the readers to create a book trailer to capture the "essence" of the story. I was excited to see what they could come up with.
*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.
