Summer Reading Flipgrid Challenge

  • flipgrid logo


    We know you're diving into great books this summer, and we hope you'll share them with Fern Hill teachers and students! For this summer's reading challenge, we encourage students to give book reviews that are 90 seconds or less. We want you to convince other readers to select your book. So, give the title, author, a brief summary, and your own rating of the book (1-5 stars). The more convincing and creative you are, the more likely your classmates will be to follow your lead and read the book! 

    To do this, we'll be using Flipgrid! Read the steps below to find out the two ways you can upload your book review to Flipgrid. Once your book review has been uploaded, take some time to review other students' videos to get new book recommendations!
