Let's Globally Connect For Special Literacy and Learning Events All Throughout The Year!

All weekend long people have been reaching out asking when the next literacy and learning event will be....and if we can have these global connections all throughout the year.  

The answer is.....YES!  :) 

By using the Library, Learning and Literacy Celebrations Throughout The Year Google Sheets where we have added events and content for each month, we can make these special connections too.  
Tonight I added a new Column to each month called Global Collaborations and Connections.  

I also moved all events like Dot Day and other global events to the top of each month highlighting them in yellow.  We will be able to find each special event quickly and easily by being here on each months Sheet.  

Let's take a look at these together.....remember this is just a start.  
Above is September and October.....I moved Read for the Record to the top and included...
a Google Doc for making connections with others around the world.  You can find it here....and please feel free to start making connections today. 
 In November, we have Picture Book Month. 
In December, we have Hour of Code.
And there is a Google Doc there for making global connections.  You will find it here too. 
In February, we have World Read Aloud Day....a day I just love!
Here is the Google Doc for making connections. 
In March, we have Read Across America.
 In April, we have one of my favorite days....Poem In Your Pocket Day.  
I have started a Google Doc for making connections for Poem In Your Pocket Day too. You will find it here
And in May, we have Children's Book Week.  

Now remember, this is just a start.  Please let me know what else you would like to celebration and connect for throughout the year.
To start, let's start making connections for the very next celebration...Read for the Record coming up on October 19.

You will find the Google Doc here and can start signing up and making connections today.

I am so happy everyone had fun for Dot Day....Now let's make this happen all throughout the year.
