Create Booksnaps with FlipGrid
Booksnaps take a literacy twist to the idea of Snapchat! Students will be using FlipGrid instead of Snapchat for this activity; however, the idea is that they do the following:
Step 1: Take a Picture!
Have students use their camera to take a picture of a passage from their book.
Step 2: Create Your Booksnap
Booksnaps should have the following three components:
- Identify - Highlight or underline a sentence or phrase that stood out to you in the text.
- Reflect - Add a sentence or phrase with a brief comment on what stood out to you from your highlighted sentence.
- Graphic - Add a graphic, drawing, or additional photo that represents something about your passage.
Step 3: Present!
Record a brief 15 to 30-second video of yourself presenting your booksnap. When you are ready, post to FlipGrid!
