Last year was my first year in an elementary school with a pop of 850. We did book club on Fridays with each grade level. I didn't have a clue plus we didn't have books for them to read altogether. I ended up trying to use technology on old computers and it was okay. I did wordle with 2nd grade, animoto with 4th (horrible, they didn't know how to use computers) and puppets at the end of school with 1st grade. I wanted to use podcast with 3rd grade but everything is blocked in our district. I hope this year will better.
I like the videotapping booktalks and book club lunches.
