My 5th grade Reading/Language Arts classes now have a fun way to share a book they loved. With the help of our IT teacher, they can make an Animoto video that is then linked to our school’s website, which can be viewed by all students. Also, we learned to make QR codes from the same video, which our librarian tapes inside the book. Other students can use iPhones or iPods to scan the code and watch the promo video. This is a great way to integrate technology skills with language arts skills! Since my students love to do this, and they can’t make a video that has been already made twice, they are encouraged to branch out in their reading genre.
