For World Read Aloud Day, Join Us In The Skype + Buncee Literacy Project!

One of my favorite days of the year is LitWorld's World Read Aloud Day, which is coming up on February 1, 2018.

Two of my favorite educational resources to use as a teacher and librarian is Buncee and Skype in the Classroom

And guess what?

Today, Skype in the Classroom and Buncee joined forces to celebrate World Read Aloud Day with a global literacy peace project for your library, classroom and community! 

As Buncee's Teacher Librarian Advocate and a Skype Master Teacher, I couldn't be more excited to share this news and to tell you how you and your students can be part of this project too. 
It is called the Skype + Buncee Literacy Project!  It is our brand new Buncee Buddies project to kick off 2018. 

Students will be collaborating, creating and sharing Buncee's to answer this question.... How Do I Model Peace In My Community? 
As shared on the project page on the Skype in the Classroom site, 

Words have the power to change our world. Reading & writing have the power to build bridges, foster understanding, and spark ideas. For World Read Aloud Day 2018, Skype in the Classroom and Buncee are asking you to join classrooms from all around to celebrate literacy by coming together to read, write, and spread peace.
Here is how you join....
Go to the Skype + Buncee Literacy Project page to read all of the details and register. 
We are already sharing on the #skypebunceebuddies hashtag and...
 don't forget to use the official hashtag, #WorldReadAloudDay, in your posts too.  
As the poems are being added to the Skype + Buncee Literacy Project Buncee Board,  
I can't wait to read and share them too.  You will find our Buncee Board here.
Remember, be creative and have fun with this project.
LitWorld would love for us to connect with authors through Skype in the Classroom for WRAD and this project is now part of the wonderful ways we can connect using Skype.  
On Skype's World Read Aloud Day 2018 page, you will find....
the Skype + Buncee Literacy Project and many others that promote literacy in awesome ways. 
You will find them here.   

The sky is the limit and the possibilities are endless on how we celebrate literacy while globally connecting and creating for World Read Aloud Day and throughout the year with Buncee and Skype in the Classroom.  

Empower your students to share peace in the community and throughout the world in 2018 by being part of our project too!
