Which book trailers are you playing this week, Mr. Schu?

My students checked out 1,529 books and placed 237 books on hold during the first full week of school. I started new units with every class, wore a different #kidlit sticker every day, gave away two boxes of books, and told the first and second graders that Jon Klassen and Mac Barnett are visiting our school library in October to celebrate Sam and Dave Dig a Hole

I plan on playing the following book trailers this week. Maybe you'll play some of them for your students, too. Happy watching! Happy reading! Happy smiling!
