Global Read Aloud

Today marked our first day participating in Global Read Aloud.  The Global Read Aloud mission is for one book to connect the world. Over the next few weeks we will be reading, doing activities, and working on comprehension skills while reading Marty McGuire by Kate Messner.  Schools and classrooms all over the world will be reading this story along with us.
Here are just some of the schools and classrooms participating in this project.

We will be connecting with Mrs. Gelles' 1st graders from Bear Creek Elementary School in Grapevine, Texas.  This morning we sent our new friends in Texas a class picture and were so excited to receive one back.  Along the way both classes will be doing similar activities and skyping to share our read aloud experiences.
        Hello from Massachusetts!                                        Our new friends from Texas!
 To kick off the project, 1st graders used clues from the story and what they already know to make predictions.  

Tomorrow we are going to add our class prediction to Bear Creek Elementary School's 1st grade prediction wall.  We look forward to our first virtual meeting!
