In the hallways at Van Meter we have put up a little fun!
Our students can STOP. LOOK. LISTEN. to wonderful book talks created by our 5th graders.
In the post Talking Book Talks In Our Hallways and Library Books! you can read all about the project and how the classroom teachers and I collaborated throughout this new adventure of creating interactive book talks.
A very important part of this project was also creating eye-catching displays in the hallways to engage our students, teachers, and school community.Book Talk Bubbles were created in the library, Mrs. Thompson and I took the students pictures, and my cadet Olivia and I created the QR codes from the EduVision/Camtasia Relay URL's of the book talks. Mrs. Thompson and her cadet Lacey put up the display in their hallway. We even had help from our friend Kimberly and a few students too.
My son Hagan was in charge of trying these out when we were putting the displays up in the hallways, but tomorrow all of our students will have a chance to scan the codes with the iTouches, iPads, or a device of their own.
You can scan the QR codes below and watch these book talks yourself too.
