Kicking Off Children's Book Week "Month" With Collaborative "Our Favorite Book" HaikuDecks Created By Our Kindergarteners and 4th Graders

With Children's Book Week from CBW coming up the week of May 12-18, 2014, we have decided to celebrate all month long in the Van Meter Library with all kinds of creative, collaborative, and engaging activities. 
Today we kicked off the month by bringing the kindergarteners and fourth graders together to share their favorite books using one of our favorite digital tools on their iPads.  
Everyone grabbed a partner and went on a search for eight to ten of their favorite books.  
As they were finding their favorite books, they were also using the HaikuDeck app on their iPads to create a little presentation to share with their friends and others to celebrate Children Book Week "Month".
We just love how the HaikuDeck's are turning out and can't wait to share even more next week as the other groups finish and publish them too. 
Happy Children's Book Week "Month" to all of you.....We hope everyone has a special time celebrating within your libraries, schools, and towns too.
