#WRAD15 World Read Aloud Day at Lakeview Elementary

The last few years, students at Lakeview have connected to classrooms around the United States (and even Singapore one time) for World Read Aloud Day (which is celebrated for an entire week and incorporates Read Across America).

For my last year doing this project, I set a goal of connecting all sections of our 6 day K-4 Media Center rotation and I'm almost there.

To plan, I am using a shared Google Doc  which is now 100+ pages long and is being contributed to by classrooms of all grade levels across the country. I have copied and pasted our local schedule (it is on approximately page 59 (but that changes).

It is a pretty amazing thing to watch grow and it takes patience and collaboration to make connections work across time zones, grade levels and types of technology. But WOW is it worth it!



This is what our schedule looks like so far. I'm still looking to fill in those blanks.
