Today, my students blogged for the first time about their thoughts on the Global Read Aloud as we get ready to start next week. One student pinpointed the spirit of the project very well:
Global collaboration is necessary to show students that they are part of something bigger than them. That the world needs to be protected and that we need to care for all people. You can show them pictures of kids in other countries but why not have them speak to each other? Then the caring can begin.
