Global Read Aloud 2015

We are excited to announce that our class will be reading the novel, Fish in a Tree, by Lynda Mullaly Hunt, for the Global Read Aloud 2015.

Fish in a Tree***

This global project has brought many rich learning experiences to my students, and students around the world, each year. The premise of the project is simple. Read aloud from the book selected and deepen your understanding by learning with other classrooms around the world.

Today, we listened to Mullaly Hunt read us the first chapter of, Fish in a Tree. Please listen in and join us in our adventure!

Strong readers read with POWER. We want to read with POWER by thinking deeply about characters right from the beginning of the story.
After reading chapter 1, tell us what predictions you have about Ally. What do you already think about her?

We have been learning about how to do screencasts and how to use Google Maps. We can go to different places throughout the world without leaving our school. So we want to share this video so you can take a tour of the White House.

We hope it inspires you to take many more tours of the world.
