Mrs. Illes and VVE fourth and fifth graders have been working on sharing book recommendations through Flipgrid. Initially, 5th graders selected some of their favorite books and then composed little digital book talks using the Flipgrid app. They wrote and then recorded information about the book title, main idea, what they liked about the book, and why another reader might enjoy it. These flipgrid videos were then shared with 4th graders who then watched them and selected a book they wanted to read based upon the 5th graders' insights. Fourth graders are now creating their own Flipgrids to share with 3rd grade students. What a great way to share digital literacy in support of text-based literacy!
