Oh Snap-Using #booksnaps as a Reading Response Tool
I'm constantly hunting for new ways to engage my students in meaningful ways. Not a fan of using technology just for technology's sake, I carefully select the tools we use in the classroom. So when booksnaps took social media by storm about two years ago, I filed it away as an engagement idea. This year, I finally got around to incorporating it! Better late than never?
Students who chose to use #booksnaps to respond to their independent reading books created them using Google Drawing. This was our first attempt, so I showed students mentor texts and when brainstormed characteristics in order to create an anchor chart.
