The #30SecondBookTalk is back and better than ever! This year we’re opening things up like never before and everyone is invited to join the fun. Here are a few reasons we’re so excited to start the collaboration with you (and your virtual classroom) now...
CONNECT: Stories are powerful connectors and so is sharing your love of reading. Finding ways to meaningfully connect with one another is important. COVID-19 may have changed the way school looks for many of us, but we can still connect, read, and grow together.
CREATE: You can use any video creation tool you like and create your best #30SecondBookTalk. (The Tips and Tricks section below has an amazing resource that my good friend and co-host, Jennifer LaGarde, put together for everyone.)
SHARE: You can help us spread the literacy-love by sharing a short booktalk video on social media using the #30SecondBookTalk hashtag! (Note: be sure you have permission from parents before sharing videos featuring students!)
SUPPORT: We can all celebrate the contributions of others as they post their booktalk videos to our community hashtag. Keep the comments, likes, and retweets flowing for fellow readers. Jenn and I plan to create a highlight video later in May, so submit early and submit often!
READ: The #30SecondBookTalk is a fantastic way to add more titles to your must-read list.
