It's Easy To Invite An Author or Illustrator To Skype With Your Students To Inspire Literacy!

I love how we now have the ability to connect our children with others around the world.

They can share their community and learn about others.

They can collaborate through digital tools and engaging experiences.

They can even connect with authors and illustrators that inspire a love of literacy we want all of our young people to have today and forever.
And with our friends at Skype in the Classroom, all children can have these opportunities.
They have partnered with several publishers...
...and also different literacy events including...
 LitWorld for World Read Aloud Day coming up on February 16.
You will find World Read Aloud Day 2017 information and activities here.
This is where you can Book An Author to visit your students through Skype.

There are also several resources from LitWorld available on this page including LitWorld's Free Picture Book, Free Classroom Packet for World Read Aloud Day and More Information.  You will find it all right here.
Skype is also asking for help in bringing together even more authors and illustrators.
If you are an author or illustrator willing to Skype with students for World Read Aloud Day or any day of the year, please check out this page and sign up today.

Our kids need you and these global connections to reading, art and others make such a difference.
