Our friends at Skype in the Classroom have teamed up with Penguin Publishers to bring our students, libraries, families and communities something very special.
On February 28, 2018 at 9am EST and 1:00pm EST, Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver will be participating in a live broadcast and Twitter Chat with all of us around the world.
Henry and Lin are the creators of the Hank Zipzer and Here's Hank book series. Children will be very excited to be part of this 30 minute free broadcast to celebrate the creativity and greatness that lives in every child, according to the site.
They will also be answering questions from students after the broadcast on Twitter using #Skype2Learn. You and your students can submit questions now through February 28.
Parents can submit questions and participate in the broadcast and Twitter chat too.here.
And you can purchase the books here too.
I can't wait to listen to the live broadcast with Henry and Lin.
This series really fits perfect into developing readers, characters and personality. Hank is a perfect character for our children.
With Read Across America Day being on March 2, this Skype event will be a lovely way to connect the two in bringing more literacy events to our children and communities.
