Yesterday, we started the Global Read Aloud project. This is our first "Going Global" project of the year. It involves schools from around the world all reading the same book, The Little Prince, and collaborating on assignments together.
We read the first few chapters yesterday, in which the narrator describes his attempts at drawing a boa constrictor eating an elephant. The students' assignment this week is to make their own drawing of this odd and imaginary situation. Then we'll scan their drawings, upload them, and share them with others participating in the project.
I'll keep you posted on our progress, but it should be interesting and a great way to jump start our "Going Global" theme.
