Trader Cards to Readbox
I’ve nixed the trader card idea – tried it today, but didn’t like it for this project. I’ve decided to use a Readbox idea from Pinterest for the wall, along with library cards in the classroom library file box. Both will utilize QR codes to access the book trailer video (see yesterday’s post). Here’s a picture from lessonswithlaughter.com where the students made the book trailers. At some point, I’d like to use this as a student activity, but I think it can also be useful through the year to encourage interest in reading.
Using PowerPoint, I’ve created two separate cards for each book on one page to be cut apart once laminated). One card has a picture of the book cover with a QR code superimposed onto the image. This card will go onto the Readbox display. The corresponding card has a title, author, and QR code minus the image of the book. This card will go into a library file accessed by students during scheduled or earned periods during language arts. The Readbox display will rotate, but the library file will grow over the year. Here is a scan of two of my cards (ignore title because it will not be used).
