Viking Book Club

Welcome, Book Club Members!

It's a great year to join the Viking Book Club! We have many fun activities planned!
Viking Book Club will meet on Wednesday afternoons from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the DMS Library. We polled the interested students, and this is the time that majority of students can attend. The remaining dates for this semester will be Wednesdays: Oct. 15, Nov. 5th, Nov. 19th, and Dec. 10th.
Please make sure that you have arranged transportation to have a ride home at 5:00. Students must be picked up on time in order to attend.

Book Trailers and Commercials

Our members are creating Book Trailers and Commercials for our morning broadcast. With your parent’s permission, you might enjoy spending some time at home creating a video.

Students are allowed to use the software with which they are the most comfortable. In case you do not have any software for this at home, here are some suggestions:

· Students can use Photostory, which is a free piece of software from Microsoft, on a PC or laptop. You can get the download for it at http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download. The students can find written directions for using photostory here: http://tinyurl.com/photostorysteps

· Students can create an Animoto account with your permission. The basic level of participation is free, and it is a good way to create simple videos. The getting started instructions are here: http://tinyurl.com/animotosteps

Animoto also has a free app available for Apple products.
