Task 19

How to make a grilled cheese sandwich.  This video is instructive, looks and sound delicious thought I would change the apple to a fresh, summer organic tomato.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKamx8f9JI8&NR=1

One could spend the entire day doodling around YouTube.  It was a good suggestion to set a time.  One thing leads to another.  I was on a site watching a book talk and then moved on to Jennifer Aniston without missing a beat.  You just get sucked into a black hole.

A couple of the videos I liked with about authors, mostly interviews with them.  Our older elementary students read novels and have classroom discussion about their meanings.


Our younger students do author studies and the interviews are very helpful.  The attached is Eric Carle talking about “The Very Hungry Caterpiller”, is methods and the meaning to him.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kce8zn2-mVo&feature=PlayList&p=05B570BE3A01AF97&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=19http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAeC2IFMSiY&feature=related

The fun video I chose is Where in the World is Matt – Dancing.   This video and other like it just make me smile,  sometimes the video seems so poignant.



Before the election I was “The Obama Girl”videos, and others that people talked about.  Or I got caught up with TV interviews that I had missed.

TeacherTube.  There are lots of great sites on Teachertube too.  Some are funny, some serious.  The one I enjoyed was http://teachertube.com/videoList.php?thumb=yes&tags=Book&user_id=0&start=64&pg=videonew .  There are pages and pages of book reviews, some by adults, some by children and also read alouds.  This site has book trailers, like movie trailers that hopefully make the book appealling to your readers.  Type in book reviews, read aloud or an author’s name and a list of videos comes up.

Also while view Teachertube found a great site Just One More Book.  Lots of books are reviewed and you can click on an author on the right hand side and find reviews for their books too.  justonemorebook.comobject>

One thought on “Task 19

  1. Thanks for the tips. I’m a librarian too and I was getting frustrated trying to find things using the keyword “reading” and “importance”. I didn’t fine much, but I will certainly use the author videos. I loved a video called Mr. Bean – Library. Very funny. You might enjoy it.
