Global Read Aloud


Posted by jdarwish | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on October 2, 2019

Hello! This year, our class will be participating in a project called the Global Read Aloud. This project will start in October and will run for approximately 6 weeks. The idea behind it is very simple; teachers around the world read the same books aloud to their students and then use technology to share the reading experience with these other classrooms. It is a free project and it fits perfectly into the standards we have to cover. 

During the project, our class will be reading the work of Yuyi Morales, and connecting with students around the world specifically a class from New Jersey and from Texas, who are reading the same book. We will use technology tools such as Padlet, Skype, Flipgrid, and Google Hangout to facilitate these connections and conversations. 

We are very excited to connect with others, especially since millions of students participate all around the globe every year This project will allow for our students to use technology tools in a meaningful way, as well as learn about other cultures, all while listening to a fantastic read aloud. 

If you would like more information about the Global Read Aloud, listen to the founder of the Global Read Aloud, Pernille Ripp by clicking on this link.            I look forward to starting this exciting project with your child, as well as seeing the connections we will make. 

All my best,

Morah Yaffa
