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 Milkweed 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 Wonder UnWholly 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.
