This is an example of a book review I do with my 3rd and 4th grade. I choose a "Hot Dog" for the week and have them write a review of one of the books they read. We animate it and use it on our Glog page for other students to see it. This protects their identity online.

I am so new to this web2.0 stuff that it has taken me this long to find your reply. Thanks for the information. Iam learning to navigate this site but obviously I need "navigation for dummer than dummies"

Hi Grace, thanks for the comment. To do my book reviews I use a combination of programs. I use Crazy Talk for basic animation, Photoshop for transparencies, and edit sound and backgronds with Vegas Video. There are other ways to accomplish similar animation I am sure. Some free programs that are similar might be:

http://www.gizmoz.com/newsite/presite/home.jsp
They are not exactly the same but if you can't get the more expensive programs they might be a good substitute. P.S. I love you idea for using them. I may have to ask my ESL teacher about that!
Let me know if I can help in any way.

I love the animation! How do you do that? Is it a program or a website that you go to? It is a wonderful way for shy children to speak. I teach Spanish speaking children and they are often reticent about speaking out loud. I would love to try this.
