Global Read Aloud

This time of year many of us look forward to the crisp fall days, the warm sweaters, and cuddling on the sofa with our kids and a great book.

In many classrooms around the world, this is also the time of year that Teachers start thinking about the Global Read Aloud. Global Read Aloud was designed by Pernille Ripp, and I'll let her tell you about the purpose.

"But I don't have a classroom! We are a homeschool family!" I hear you cry, but my hope is that we can start building our school community by participating in activities like this.

One way we can do that is by letting students participate in our (safe, secure, and private) school writing program- Write About. Write About is a great platform for sharing writing with other students, but it's also a great way to learn about Digital Literacy and Digital Citizenship.

If you're interested in participating in the Writing Activities, go to Write About and click Register. The Teacher Code is SM8934. Then they sign in with their email accounts.

You do not have to participate in the writing activities to listen to the books this year! I'll be sharing audio tracks of me reading the books through our blog here, starting October 16th!
