Well, we are on day three of being out of school due to cold and snow, so, Mrs. Wells has decided to offer a special Snow Day challenge.
Here are the rules:
1. Read a book (any book that is your level. It could be from the library at school or your personal collection.) It can be a book you checked out last week when we were in school as well.
2. Google or check YouTube for samples of book trailers. There are some AWESOME ones out there. Book trailers are quick and easy grabbers to a book. They are like the trailers you see at the movie theater before the actual movie begins.
3. On your school device, you have a program called MovieMaker. It is built in. Play around with it. It is very easy to use. Find some pictures, find some video, find some audio. Look for Creative Commons, like I have mentioned before. Assemble a movie about the book. It only needs to be 30 seconds to a minute. You can do clips and a voice over, you can record yourself talking about the book, whatever you feel is the way to get people excited.
4. Save the document on your computer and stop in the library when we get back from weather days. Mrs. Wells will help you transfer it to her.
The library staff will watch the trailers and choose the best one. The winner will get 2 coffee shoppe coupons. Everyone who submits one gets their name in a drawing for a coffee shoppe coupon.
So... what are you going to read Hamilton? Mrs. Well is finishing Beautiful Darkness and Insurgent.
