Book Rec Ad


You have three learning targets for this project:

  • I can write a brief description of a book that sparks interest in it without giving too much of it away.
  • I can meet the expectations of the 8th grade Writing Specs. (Remember, book titles are italicized!).
  • I can create a visually appealing and easily understandable poster with creative and artistic elements, such as backgrounds, images, font choices, colors, and so on.

Click here for the GoogleDocs (which I often abbreviate as “GD”) assignment sheet, which can also be found on GoogleClassroom (which I often abbreviate as “GC”).

Let’s talk Summer Reading!


For the next few days, please bring at least one of your favorite summer reading books. If you don’t have the book, you can print out a copy of the cover or have the cover open on your laptop. Because we’re going to be moving around the room, it’d be easier for you to have the book or a printed copy of the cover.

Also please bring in your Summer Reading Bingo card with the books you read listed in the boxes! Please definitely do so if you got a Bingo! Woo hoo!

Here’s a link to the Summer Reading information.
