Be Your Brightest Star!
by Tatiana Florival
If you’re currently teaching students remotely, sixth grade reading teacher Amy Soupiset recommends using Project Middle School and online social-learning platforms such as Flipgrid to engage students in the story.
Amy loves using Project Middle School as a virtual read-aloud with her sixth grade reading students! She finds that reading two to three chapters a day with her class helps her to reassure students who may be nervous about the adjustment from elementary school to middle school. She also finds that Hope’s story provides an excellent avenue into:
• Comparing points of view (particularly first and third person)
• Discussing or planning science projects
• Using Flipgrid (an online social-learning platform that’s free for educators, learners, and families)
Watch Amy’s Scholastic Book Clubs–exclusive teacher review video to discover how this novel about Hope and her friends can fit into your online curriculum!
