See You in 2013!

To say that this year's Global Read Aloud was a success is an understatement.  With almost 30,000 students, more than 800 different facilitators and 6 continents represented, this project has truly taken on a life of its own.  So thank you if you participated or helped in any way.  Next year the project will be even better (hopefully) and will be either 5 or 6 weeks long per feedback from this year.

Who knows which books will be shared but I am already open to your suggestions.  Sign up now to participate next year and stay in the loop of all things Global Read Aloud.

And you are not quite sure what the Global Read Aloud is, please read this.

And if you have signed up and don't know what to do now, just wait, information will be coming in the summer of 2013.

And the Winners Are....

With over 150 entries, the call from Katherine Applegate was very hard to choose.  So we picked our top 30 entries and then did a random number generator.  There were just too many of you that we would have loved to give a call to.  But if you didn't win, please don't despair.  Katherine is currently filming a video just for all of us it will be finished soon.  And if you did win, congratulations, and do try to have as many classrooms part of the call.  Spread the love just a little.

Drum roll please...

The winners are the classrooms of...

Janet Connoly

Jillian Heise


Lorie Bane

But wait, because Katherine was blown away by all of the entries she agreed to do just one more call, and that call goes to...

Stockwell Elementary School and Kim Howell.

Congratulations and thank you for reading and loving Ivan....
