I love Kevin Henkes books, and the kids do too. I recently made some book trailers based on his books.
I used the Animoto app, and it was extremely easy to use! I had the students draw pictures based on the characters, setting or problem using the Doodle Buddy app and we drew pictures with markers and crayons.
I uploaded the pictures, and we created words together. We also picked the music to go with the story. Put your mouse over the Thinglink below! The kids LOVED watching them. I look forward to making many more movie trailers.

Have students make the character
and write describing words.
