My elementary reading group is part of the Global Read Aloud this year. It is over 100,000 students around the world reading the same book. With four books to choose from, students of all ages can be a part. It is so exciting to be a part of this! I chose Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper to be a part of this year. This book is about Melody, a girl with a lot of challenges. Will she overcome them?
We are doing a weekly Skype with another classroom within our school district, though 70 miles away. We are also contributing to a classroom blog in South Carolina, and then doing other things as we come across like this Padlet about Melody’s fish, Ollie.
