Product Description
Let’s Get Gloggin’! Creating a Glog Based on a Novel.

Looking for a unique way to assess independent reading or searching for a creative book project?

Let’s Get Gloggin’ will enable you to provide your students with a creative, artistic learning opportunity - one that will appeal to our technology-savvy 21st century learners!

With the Let’s Get Glogging’ resource packet, your students will engage in visual mind mapping as they plan, design, and create online, interactive glogs based on their reading of a novel.

This packet will enable your students to synthesize multiple texts, integrate visual media, digital resources, and engage in informational text writing as they create their novel glogs.

*For schools and teachers who have not purchased a subscription to Glogster:

Please note you can use the trial version of Glogster for Educators in order for up to 125 students to create a Glog for free! This trial version lasts for 7 days. Students can create their glogs in 2-3 days after teachers register and receive their class code.

Once the seven days have passed, teachers and students can view their Glogs but cannot make edits or create additional glogs without purchasing a subscription.


Since Glogster is now a paid subscription, buyers will receive a second independent reading project using the Smore website at no cost.

All materials for the Smore Interactive Book Flyers are also included - printable student planning sheets, a project example, grading rubric, students project sheet, etc. This website is free for students and teachers to use! The Smore flyer can contain the same content as a Glogster flyer or poster, also!
