This year we are participating in the 2012 Global Read Aloud. During the month of October, classrooms from around the world will be participating in this event. The book chosen for the Global Read Aloud is Charlotte's Web by E.B. White. Parents, you may want to pick up a copy of the book and read it along with your child. The chapters are being read according to the schedule below:
Week 1 Ch. 1-6
Week 2 Ch. 7-11
Week 3 Ch. 12-17
Week 4 Ch. 18-22
We are hoping to connect with other classrooms from around the world who are also taking part in this event. Our first connection is with Mrs. Nemecek's class in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. They will begin the event by responding to a question on their Kidblog. We will stop by their blog and leave some comments for them on Monday. We are planning to use our classroom Twitter account to tweet our responses to the book and we'll share our responses and information here, on our class blog. We are very excited to participate in this event which starts on Monday, October 1, 2012.
