Global Read Aloud.....Excitement in the Air!!!


I am meeting with some of my courageous co-workers tomorrow to plan for our upcoming GLOBAL READ ALOUD, which starts Oct. 5th and end Nov. 13th.  Teachers will be reading either a picture book a week or specific chapters for those upper grades and then we will be collaborating with classrooms all over the world.  This could be a bit messy but should be so much fun!  Here are a few resources for my coworkers.

First thing is to sign up on the Google Form to start receiving email

How to set up a classroom Twitter account

More on official hashtags that you may want to look at

Posters and parent letter to communicate you are using Twitter in your class

Summit Global Read Aloud bookmark

Setting up an Edmodo account  (you don't have to invite students since you will be using it with the entire class as a whole)
Here is the link to the Edmodo groups you may want to follow depending on what book you are reading
