Day 151 – Thinglink Interactive Book

A step away from math class today…

Book BuddiesAnother teacher and I have worked on putting together an interactive book created by our National Junior Honor Society and Student council students.  The book was created for their First grade book buddies, a group of students that they visit and read with 4 times throughout the year.  It was done as an effort to promote reading literacy.

To create this book, we used two main resources: Thinglink and Soundcloud.

1. Thinglink is an interactive photo page where you can “make your image come to life” by adding music, video, sound, text, or links onto the page.

2. Soundcloud allows the students to record and upload their voice.

Here is the link to the Interactive Book!
