Kindergarten Media Literacy

Media Literacy Cards

This week at the McSpedden Library, I will be helping teach Media Literacy to our Kindergarten students.

I love teaching Media Literacy, so I am excited to take on the challenge of teaching it to our Kinders!

I will be using the below presentation and these Media Literacy Tools Cards with the kids: Graphics Card Picture Cards Sound Cards Video Cards Words Cards.

I am going to talk to them about what each card represents and then we are going to look at some different forms of media to see which tools we can identify in the media. I have little baggies with each tool card in it and a white piece of cardstock for them to put the cards on as we identify the tools.

  1. This is so awesome! You are so awesome! You have inspired me to try to create a digital media literacy lesson. I presented at the LITE UP conference in Dallas yesterday and told my attendees to look up your website for great lessons like this! I also repeated your creed that we should all share as librarians (freely) to collaborate together and not succumb to the Teachers Pay Teachers craze!

  2. this is just what i need.. this is the first year i am teaching media literacy and your lesson is very concise and just right .. plse allow me to use it!

  3. I am a kindergarten teacher in Lewisville ISD (in Lewisville, TX), and our upcoming unit is on Media Literacy. I have just viewed your lesson and slideshow, and I was wondering if you would share these resources with me and my kinder team? This topic is quite difficult to find good resources!
    Are there any books that you recommend for little kids to help make this topic easier to understand?
    Thank you so much!
