Thing #20 Gotta Keep Reading

Okay, I've been waiting for this post. I am posting my favorite You Tube and Teacher Tube video. We played this before our Read-a-thon day. The kids loved it and began singing, then holding their books, then dancing. So did the teachers!

Well, I copied and pasted the embed code and it worked!

I did have trouble with the links for the Three Steps and Evaluating Websites Tutorial. They both linked to the same page. I found the Evaluating Website Tutorial by typing the title in the search bar. However, I could not find the Three Steps. I liked the Portal to Texas History with all the photos, drawings, maps, and prints. It looks like a good resource.

I have used videos in the library. The second grade watched a short video on needs and wants for an economics, I put a couple of videos in a sample glogster for teaching purposes, and I have pulled author videocasts for use in lessons. Used judiciously, they are a great asset.


  1. What a fun way to motivate kids to read. I enjoyed this video. I know kids will too.

  2. Yeah BJ you are right...Kids will enjoy..
