The Global Read Aloud Program

Same books+different responses=global collaboration+peace

Join us for an exciting six week journey towards flattening our classroom walls!

Global collaboration is necessary to show students that they are part of something bigger than them. That the world needs to be protected and that we need to care for all people. You can show them pictures of kids in other countries but why not have them speak to each other? Then the caring can begin.

By connecting with other classes of the same grade level from different parts of the world, students will learn how to appreciate the value of collaborating and building knowledge from various points of view.

When & Where?

Starting mid-September for pre-Read Aloud activities at SPB's Library/Learning Commons. It officially starts on September 30th and runs for six weeks until November 8th. We will be using Edmodo and our weebly website as platforms to host communication apps such as or Fotobabble.

Guaranteed to be fun and motivating!
