Making books come to life!

June 7, 2023

You know those cool movie trailers to preview an upcoming movie?

Well fifth grade students at Mt. Pleasant Elementary have created book trailers using the WeVideo editing program. Book trailers are supposed to get viewers interested in the book without giving away the ending.

Students learned the program by creating a class trailer with Ms. Lutz. They then selected their own books, created a storyboard, and completed their trailers. Students were excited to share their trailers with fourth graders, family members, teachers, and administrators!

(Bonus points if you read this post in a "movie trailer" voice)  :)
