The Global Read Aloud starts this week! My students and I are really excited to participate in the #GRAAmy book study. I wanted to share a ThingLink that we’ll be using. It has book trailers, links to Amy’s website, videos and more. I’m planning to share some of the video clips with students, and share it with families to get everyone excited and familiar with the books. I’d love for you to use this resource too!
We’re already enjoying Tweeting with new friends and Amy Krouse Rosenthal herself! It’s so amazing to see the looks on my student’s faces when they saw that Amy had favorited our Tweet about Spoon today. We are looking forward to the slow chat too. Learn more about that from Pernille Ripp at the Global Read Aloud website.
We read Spoon today, and will read Chopsticks tomorrow. Here’s a quick Pic Collage we made and Tweeted out today. I think we’ll be combining Pic Collage, ThingLink and Twitter to record many of our thoughts for the Global Read Aloud. I see plenty of drawings in Paper and shared on our Kidblogs too!
I’m thrilled for my students to be a part of the Global Read Aloud this year! A huge thank you to Pernille Ripp for organizing this wonderful opportunity for students to connect around books!
