World Read Aloud Day 2013

March 6 was World Read Aloud Day.

At Lakeview, the Media Center connected with 3 classrooms: one from Oklahoma (shown above), one from Massachusetts and one from Minnesota.

But of course, reading was taking place all over the district, as it does everyday.

I asked teachers to share the titles they were reading aloud and these are the responses I received:

The Watsons Go to Birmingham 1963
Stone fox
Where the Red Fern Grows
On My Honor
Tuck Everlasting
Ghost of Spirit Bear
Leprechaun In Late Winter
Robin's Country
Mystery on the Iditarod Trail
Series of Unfortunate Events: A Bad Beginning
George Brown, Class Clown
The Three Little Pigs
Monsters of Men
Pete the Cat, Rocking in My School Shoes
Jack and the Leprechaun
The Leprechaun Who Lost His Rainbow
Runaway Ralph
The Forest
Horrid Henry  Tricks the Tooth Fairy
Sleepy Bears
Molly Lou Lemon - Standing Tall
Charlotte's Web
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone 
The Wizard of Oz 
Golden Lion Tamarin Comes Home

We are lucky to have great teachers, great students and great books to read here at Solon. World Read Aloud Day is an opportunity to for all of us to recognize that not everyone has the opportunities that we do. There are millions of people who cannot read and don't have books available to them to learn to read.
