I’m joining many teachers and guest speakers all across the country as weÂ recognize the upcoming World Read-Aloud Day through “Skype in the Classroom.”Â I can’t wait to see how it’s going to go!
On Wednesday, February 26, I’ll be reading The Itchy Little Musk Ox to Ms. Oldham’s students at Willow Crest Elementary in Anchorage. We’re beginning a half-hour of reading and chatting at 9:15 a.m. Alaska time, so if your early elementary class elsewhere in the country would like to join us, it’s so easy! Please register for my lesson at https://education.skype.com/projects/7810-the-itchy-little-musk-ox-the-book-and-the-beast. It’ll be fun.
It’s all part of World Read-Aloud Day, with the Children’s Book Council and LitWorld, putting their resources behind the event, which is now it its fourth year. The actual Read-Aloud Day is Wednesday, March 5, and I’ll be visiting an Oregon classroom on that day.
Even if you don’t take part in a Skype lesson, if you have a special kid in your life, make sure to celebrate March 5 by sitting down with a book and then talking about it afterward.
And know that millions of others will be doing the same thingÂ onÂ that day.
