6th Grade Non Fiction Book Reviews

Hard at work!
Sixth grade teachers asked me if I would pull some interesting non-fiction books that students could read. Each student then chose a book that was of high interest to them. Students were given two weeks to read their books. Their teachers worked with students to write a summary of the book and a book review. Students also picked out important vocabulary and interesting facts they learned.

When students were ready to publish their review, I pushed into each sixth grade room to teach students how to use SMORE to create an online flier. I have a classroom subscription and will renew my subscription next year. I used it earlier this year with our 4th grade state research. It is a versatile easy to use tool for students (and adults). I can't recommend it enough! See our book review below. They turned out great!
