One of our favorite reading and book celebrations each year is The Global Read Aloud, which uses one book to connect our world of readers.
This year it starts on September 30, 2019 and runs for 6 weeks. And this year....it is the 10th Anniversary of Global Read Aloud, which is something to celebrate in itself!
I have participated in Global Read Aloud from the beginning. I love how GRA brings all of us together through books, reading and celebrating the wonderful authors and illustrators that bring our readers these special reading experiences.
One of my favorite GRA memories is when the 5th graders at Van Meter teamed up with 5th graders in New Hampshire to read Sharon Draper's Out of My Mind. Every week they all came to the library where we Skyped with the class in New Hampshire. We used Edmodo for discussion as we read and to keep the conversation going throughout the week. It was an amazing experience for all of us.
I am especially excited about Global Read Aloud this year as we get ready to celebrate it at Van Meter. I ordered the books last week and can't wait to share these with all of our students and teachers. This is an amazing year of books, authors and illustrators!
