I've been introducing new books in our library to 6th grade students this week via book trailers.

It's no secret I'm a HUGE Tom Angleberger fan (as evidenced in blog posts here and here) so I've had a blast showing these trailers:





Find out more about Fake Mustache and Horton Halfpott by clicking on the titles.

Students are also super excited about the new James Dashner's series:  The Infinity Ring.  Book One is entitled A Mutiny in Time.



We've also watched both Charlie Joe Jackson trailers since the new book Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Extra Credit just arrived.



I find the key to book trailers is to show several that match books that are available in the library....then I have to alternate for the next class because it's no fun if none of the books previewed are available!  The past few weeks, I've slowly been introducing new titles into the collection, but alternating so each class has a shot at checking them out.

  1. Where do you find these great book trailers? Have students in your school created any? One of the schools around where I teach is having the students create the trailers. Just wondering about a variety of approaches to doing them.

  2. My favorite place to start is teachingbooks.net I also google & look for ones released by the publishing company. I search YouTube as well.

    My students have used Animoto to create booktrailers as well as VoiceThread.
