Classroom Book Clubs Update
Printable PDF Slide Handouts
Have you tried using my Classroom Book Clubs
program with your students? It's an easy and engaging form of Literature Circles that doesn't use roles, nor does it overload kids with homework. The Classroom Book Clubs product consists of a series of short video tutorials for the teacher in which I explain, step-by-step, how the program works. Organizational tools and student printables are included, too. There's even a Facebook group for teachers to share ideas with others who are using the program! I wanted to let you know that I recently updated this product
by adding printable PDFs of the slides in the tutorial
. If you've already purchased it, click over to TpT
to download your free update! I also updated my Literature Circles Discussion Bundle
which includes the Classroom Book Clubs program.
Educators Exploring How to Use MrOwl
in the Classroom
Join the MrOwl Educators Facebook Group
MrOwl.com is a new, ad-free social media platform that has huge potential for educational use. It combines a kid-friendly, safe search engine with tools for bookmarking, sharing, and organizing information. The folks at MrOwl.com are seeking input from educators about how to develop new features that will make the site even more suitable for classroom use, and I've agreed to help. One new feature they will be adding this week is a collection of website templates so teachers can create a class website on MrOwl! If you're interested in working with the folks at MrOwl to make their site safe for kids and user-friendly for teachers, fill out this Google Doc form to request membership in my MrOwl Educators Facebook group. After you fill out the form, set up your user profile on MrOwl and check out the site. If you want early access to the class website templates, follow me on MrOwl because my followers will get those templates first!
