TeachingBooks is great for students to use! In this post, we are highlighting end-of-the-year student projects that can be completed with the support of resources found on the site. With each of these projects, students can practice citing resources with the citation option found within the sharing tool.
“Year-in-Review” Booklist Ideas
These are great to do as a class or in small groups!
- Make a presentation of your favorite reads from the year linking each title to a Book Trailer, Audiobook Excerpt, or Meet-the-Author Recording. Be sure to include a description of why you liked it!
- Create Student Reading Records with printable bookmarks and more for the books you’ve read this year. Print and share with your classmates and family!
- Write Peer Reading Recommendations — students choose a book they read, write their own recommendation in a paragraph, then print the QR code for a resource on the book to add to a class-wide visual display.
Summer Reading Bookshelf Ideas
- Set up a Bitmoji Reading Corner that can be shared with the whole class for a collective summer reading project. Link different images to related activities or Meet-the-Author Recordings for a virtual library treasure hunt.
- Use Video Book Trailers to create a digital bookshelf of potential summer reading titles.
- Make a list of books to check out from the library for independent summer reading with the Reader’s Advisory tool.
Just for Fun Ideas
- Start with our Scavenger Hunt to practice navigating the site.
- Explore the For Fun section to find new book trailers, audiobook recordings, and more.
- Try out some of the Invitation to Imagine activities in our Virtual Book Tours.
