I’m always looking for ways to mix books and creativity in Homeschool Hub, and my group has always loved making videos. What better way to do that than book trailers? We started by talking about trailers in general, and what a book trailer should accomplish. We watched a bunch of book trailers, both professional and kid made, and after each one I asked the kids if it made them want to read the book.
I originally did stop motion animation for a Maker Monday program, and it was a blast so I decided to keep offering it, with a few tweaks. My first attempt was at a Homeschool Hub program. I also did this program a few weeks later at the high school for their Digital Day of Learning.
