Great ideas! My kids would love to make book trailers and have talk shows!

Good information!
I appreciate the three resources she shared with us; Spark Video, Flipgrid, and Google Slides to foster collaboration among students for PBL experiences.

Excellent use of collaboration. Reminded me of a few projects I did with my first graders in the past, where they were the experts on one thing and we pieced together all the student parts to make a book! Also I will now work with Google Classroom to collaborate. I have been motivated to go back and model reader's responses to get students using the evidence in the text to support their opinions.

Monica presents information very clearly. The ideas are excellent and I appreciated that she actually showed us how three tools she recommended for collaboration actually work. Well done!
Great ideas! I can't wait to utilize some of them in my classroom.
