The Global Read Aloud Project

The book has been selected and the start date set, now all we do is wait and the anticipation is making me excited!  So as you prepare for this project please add to our lesson guide that I have started.  I know about some technology that may be incorporated into the project but I bet there is a lot of other ideas out there.  So please share your thoughts with the world, just as I have been.

The final question I have been pondering is length of the project; would we prefer it to wrap up at the end of October?  That would mean we give ourselves 6 weeks to read the book, since we start September 20th, so about 4 chapters a week - not impossible if you think about it.  What are your thoughts?  Does the end of October sound like a doable finish date?

The end of October sounds doable to me. I'm really looking forward to it. I just ordered a copy from Amazon the other day.

These dates work for me as well. Thanks for getting this organized. The lesson guide is looking good. I plan to add to it, just want to read the book again.

I think we should try to get in done in 4 weeks as proposed by @learningforlife. I agree that the shorter the time frame, the more the kids will be engaged and excited about it. The book is short so I will post a proposed time line in a bit.

sounds good to me...i see the children only one time per week, but hopefully with the help of the classroom teachers, I can get done in time.

Thanks so much for organizing this - I'm really excited! I agree - the shorter timeline will help keep momentum for such a small book. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help! @tcash
