A few of my Newbery Book Club students chose to write book reviews for this year's Newbery Medal winner Hello, Universe, by Erin Entrada Kelly. Check them out below!
It's that time of year again! My Newbery Book Club students created media presentations about some of their favorite Newbery winners. We have book trailers, 90 Second Newbery Films, and even an audio podcast this year.
This year, students read the two most current winners: The Girl Who Drank the Moon, by Kelly Barnhill and Hello, Universe, by Erin Entrada Kelly. Both got high marks from all students. We read Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis and then got to meet him when he came to F.AVE in October. Students got to choose a winning book from the 1990s, a "classic" winner, and a non-fiction Newbery winner. We looked at the criteria that the Newbery committees use to make their choices, and we evaluated books using that criteria. Students discussed their books and did different projects through-out the year. Their culminating project is a media presentation on a Newbery book of their choice.
Check out our wonderful presentations below!
