Global Read Aloud 2012

October 1st marks the first day of the Global Read Aloud Project.  The Global Read Aloud project is meant to make the world a little smaller for our students and to look at all of our shared experiences.  Students from around the globe will be reading the same book and sharing their thoughts, predictions and ideas with each other.  My class is beginning to share predictions on Monday with Mrs. Lirenman's class from Surrey, British Columbia via Skype.  We will be making our predictions about the book Charlotte's Web.  

Here is an Animoto on the Global Read Aloud History created by Mrs. Ripp

All classes participating will be following the same reading schedule:
Week 1: chapters 1 through 6
Week 2: chapters 7 through 11
Week 3: chapters 12 through 17
Week 4: chapters 18 through 22

We would love to do a Google Hangout with 2 or 3 different classes that are participating at the same time.  I would love to read a chapter or 2 to your classes sometime in October and my class would love to hear you read a chapter to them via Skype or Google Hangout.  Let me know if you are interested.
