As part of our school's World Read Aloud Day celebration, professional artist and our Middle School art teacher Heather Burton did a presentation about she's creating a children's picture book.
Ms. Burton's son Conner, who is the main character of the book, read the latest draft of the book to us. How cool is that?
We learned a lot!
Ms. Burton was kind enough to allow us to record her presentation to the Photography class.
- A padlet wall answering the question: "What is your earliest and fondest memory of someone reading aloud to you?" [wall, blog post]
- A hangout with +Matthew Winner, creator of the WRAD14 Blogging Challenge, and Rosie Sutherland, a King Kekaulike student who didn't learn to read until she was 10. [hangout, blog post]
- A read-aloud to kindergarteners in Litchfield, Massachusetts. [video, blog post]
This was the first time we participated in World Read Aloud Day!
Will we participate next year? You bet!
Happy reading aloud!
