Podcasting in 4th Grade

by Randy Ziegenfuss

This post was written by Mrs. Susan Young, 4th grade teacher at Harry S Truman Elementary School.

Reading is an important part of elementary school. Now is the time to encourage students to develop a love of books. The students in Mrs Young’s 4th grade class are required to read books from a variety of different genres. After the students have read their book of choice, they are required to do a book project. The students have a variety of choices to present their book project, though means of technology or paper and pencil. Evan read a poetry book and created a podcast in GarageBand.

    I love to hear students talking about good books they have read–and so will other readers, so make sure to have links to your podcasts put in Destiny Catalog! During library classes at Western, 4th and 5th graders have been listening to podcasts about books that have won the PA Young Readers Choice Award. When looking for a good book to read, we’d love to hear your “thumbs up” podcasts about more good reads!
