Global Read Aloud Light T-Shirt Global Read Aloud Comes to Burlington!


Dear Families,

My reading class will be participating in the Global Read Aloud Project! We will be reading The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate and sharing our thinking about the book with other classrooms from across the world. We will be connecting with classrooms in Florida, Texas, and Saskatchewan, Canada to name a few.

We will be using a primary form of electronic communication, Edmodo to share with other students.  Students will share questions, answers, and thinking using on  a safe social learning network designed specifically for classrooms. Students are not able to join groups unless they have been given a code, so only those teachers who I have connected with and shared our code with can join our discussion group. In addition, we will holding Skype sessions to discuss the book as a class and share activities and projects we are working on.  We are ecstatic about this project and the learning ahead. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!                                                     Mrs. Burns
