Book Reviews You Can Use!

We have had a busy week in Writer's Workshop! In Unit Four of Lucy Calkin's Writer's Workshop students begin learning how to write persuasive reviews. We decided to write  book reviews about some of our favorite books.  After writing and sharing their reviews with each other, students used the video camera on our iPads to make videos or commercials of their review.  Next, we used iMovie to put them all together.  All I can say is WOW! They all did a terrific job!

Jersey's book review was accidentally left out of the class movie.  I am so sorry Miss Jersey! I have posted it separately until I have a chance to put it in. She did an excellent review of one of my favorite Christmas stories!
