The Global Read Aloud is Coming!

In one weeks time we will be taking part in the Global Read Aloud.  What you may ask is the Global Read Aloud? The Global Read Aloud connects children from around the world over a shared book. This year there are four books to choose from and as a Grade One Class there are two different options for us and we will be enjoying both.

To begin with we will be taking part in the Eric Carle book study.  We will be working with a variety of classes sharing ideas and co creating projects.  Here are some of the books we'll be reading together.

Week 1 Sept 30 : The Very Hungry CaterpillarWeek 2 Oct 7: Have You Seen My CatWeek 3 Oct 14: The Mixed Up ChameleonWeek 4 Oct 21: Do You Want to Be My Friend? and A House for a Hermit CrabWeek 5 Oct 28: Hello Red Fox and A Very Lonely FireflyWeek 6 Nov 4: Slowly, Slowly said the Sloth

We will also been sharing Marty McGuire by Kate Messner . This is a chapter book which Ms. Lirenman will read to us over the course of six weeks. Again we will do projects with this book too. We will connect with many children both locally in Surrey, and beyond. Here is the schedule for Marty McGuire.

Week 1 Sept 30: Chapters 1-2 (pg. 1-19)Week 2 Oct 7: Chapters 3-5 (pg. 20-38)Week 3 Oct 14: Chapters 6-7 (pg. 39-57)Week 4 Oct 21: Chapters 8-9 (pg. 58-79)Week 5 Oct 28: Chapters 10-11 (pg. 80-95)Week 6 Nov 4: Chapters 12-14 (pg. 96-131)

As you can imagine Ms. Lirenman is really excited to have us connecting with other children around the world over shared stories.  We are excited too.
