April Wikitastic Book Reviews


New! See how to embed a Glog onto the Wiki.

For the month of April, third graders have selected a book of their choice. They will make a Wikitastic Book Review on our class wiki. Book Reviews must be posted on the Wiki by the last day of the month.


Directions for Making a Wikitastic Book Report:


1. Read the book.
2. Sign in to our Wiki.
3. Click on Wikitastic Book Review.
4. Click on New Page.
5. Name the new page with the book title and your first name spelled correctly.
(Example: How to Be Cool in Third Grade - Dawn)
6. Click on the pull down menu (blue arrow) and look for the template of the Wikitastic Book Review.
7. Tag it "april, your name," (Use lower case letters and the comma. Do not include the quotation marks. For example you will type: march, dawn,)
8. Click on CREATE.
9. Fill in the required information. The summary MUST have at least 8 complete sentences, and the opinion must have at least 5 complete sentences with correct spelling, capitalization, and punctuation.
10. Click Save.
11. Make sure your book review appears under the correct month on our Wikitastic Page.

Technology Choices
(One technology piece must be a Glog. One technology piece is the student's choice.):

1. Find and insert a digital picture of your book cover or characters from your book into your book review.
2. Include the URL of the picture you used as a link on your book review.
3. You may want to create a Wordle (wordle.net) using important words from your story. Insert the Wordle into your book review. Name the project and include your first name. (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Wordle- Dawn)
4. Create a picture in KidPix.
5. Create and upload a Glogster poster about your book.
6. Or you may want to try creating your own PowerPoint presentation!
7. Or get really creative and make your own video using a Flip camera.
8. If you have any other ideas, let me know!

**Toward the end of the month, I will schedule a one hour block in the computer lab for students to work on any tech project. This will hopefully alleviate any problems you may be experiencing at home!
