I adore this infographic by Naomi Bates, teacher at Northwest High School in Austin, Texas. Book trailers can be a great way to merge technology and literature. Check out these excellent tips for students creating book trailers.
Why have a regular bookmark when you can have one that includes a book trailer? What a GREAT alternative to a book report -- have them create a book trailer, link it to a QR code & then print & make available to the class :)
Cloudette by Tom Lichtenheld -- Book Trailer. While not completely nephologically accurate, this is a darling and fun read. Bonus if you have a small fry on the small side, since this protagonist is also petite.
