Book Trailer: A Trio of Uplifting Activity Ideas
by Traci Swain
Inspired by Molly Lou’s self-confidence in Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon—the empowering Book of the Week—the Book Boys try out some fun activities designed to help students embrace who they are in this class-friendly video.
• Allister writes a positive affirmation from Molly Lou’s grandmother on a notecard to remind him of what makes him special.
• Elliott brainstorms about what makes him unique and creates a self-portrait.
• Max reflects on Molly Lou’s bully, Ronald, to understand how he transforms over the course of the story.
Watch the Book Boys video with your class to get your students excited to read Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon! After, we’d love to hear what your students think about the Book of the Week. If you’re able, please share with us and other Scholastic Book Clubs teachers on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #ScholasticBookClubs!
The Book Boys work in different departments at Scholastic Book Clubs. They formed a group to share a wide range of books and introduce students to the world of reading. Each week, the Book Boys select a book to feature. They make stories come alive by creating fun, educational, and engaging videos for teachers and families to use in the classroom or at home. The Book Boys, like everyone at Scholastic Book Clubs, want all kids to love to read and be proud to declare: “I am a reader!”
