My fourth grade students just finished up a biography unit. We read Stand Straight Ella Kate, The Quite Contrary Man, and learned about Helen Keller. To encourage reading of biographies, I decided to introduce students to "Bookfaces". It is a social media trend where book lovers take a picture of themselves blending into the cover of a book to promote literacy. My fourth grade students were so excited about it, so I thought why stop at fourth grade and biographies. To spread the love, all students can participate in bookfaces with any genre of book. If they post it on Instagram with the hashtag #caldwellbookfaces and tag @caldwelllibrary, they just may become a feature in the next caldwelllibrary Instagram post!
