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 The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo. 296,000 students, 5,600 different teachers in more than 60 different countries are already signed up to take part in this global project.  Klipfel and Kids will be connecting with Mrs. Gelles' 1st graders from Bear Creek Elementary School in Grapevine, Texas. This afternoon we sent our new friends in Texas a class picture and are excited to receive one back soon.
Hello from Massachusetts 
Along the way both classes will be doing similar activities and skyping to share our read aloud experiences. To kick off the project, 1st graders used clues from the title, pictures, and cover to make predictions.  Now we're ready to take part on Edward's journey.
