Ms. Woznick is participating in this year's Global Read Aloud with the book Prairie Lotus by Newbery Award-winning author Linda Sue Park. She will be reading it on Google Meet starting on Wednesday, October 7 from 11:45-12:15pm.
The schedule has been updated slightly to accommodate more students. Those who would like to participate may join a Google Meet from home 2 times a week -- either Wednesday and Thursday or Wednesday and Friday. The read aloud is scheduled for times when most students are scheduled for independent work, lunch, or Global Apps. (This is a Global Apps choice and it may also count as an independent reading option for many teachers.)
See this presentation for more information about Global Read Aloud and the book. In order to participate, students must enroll in a Google Classroom - the link is in the presentation. (It's not exactly a "class" but this is an easy way to keep things organized and private.) They must enroll from a device logged into the student's school login.
Students do not need to have a copy of the book to participate, but if you would like to purchase one, Copper Dog Books in downtown Beverly is offering us a special 20% off coupon code for this title!
