First graders are learning how to be persuasive and support their opinions in their writing (watch out parents!). They will be creating video book reviews using iMovie on their iPads to express their opinions about books.
They will begin by reviewing the same book, This is Not My Hat, by Jon Klassen. This book received the Caldecott Medal in 2013 for its illustrations, but the story has been controversial.
What do you think? Do you give this book a thumbs up or thumbs down?
