GLOBAL READ ALOUD, a bonafide international movement created by the fantastico, Pernille Ripp, is almost upon us! I cannot even TELL you how honored I am by this. By all of the readers who will be meeting Ally, Albert, Keisha and the others. I never take it lightly. I promise you that.
I wish I could visit EVERYONE! I also wish that I could respond to every Skype request with a YES! Unfortunately my schedule will just not allow for any more. However, I want kids everywhere to know that, although I can’t visit in-person, I am with them in spirit on this journey. So…
I will be posting Q&A videos pertaining to Fish in a Tree on each Thursday morning of Global Read Aloud. My first video will appear on Thursday, October 8th and will cover chapters 1-8. The other videos will follow each of the following five Thursdays to follow this GRA reading schedule.
Week of October 5: Chapters 1 – 8
Week of October 12: Chapters 9 – 17
Week of October 19: Chapters 18 – 24
Week of October 26: Chapters 25 – 33
Week of November 2: Chapters 34 – 42
Week of November 9: Chapters 43 – end
The videos themselves (which will remain up permanently for future use) will be found both on YouTube.com and on my blog here:
I love the idea of getting questions from kids and picking some to answer, but my schedule will not allow for that. As you’re reading, I may be flying over your school in an airplane! So, I will sit and record all of the videos prior to reading weeks and schedule them to appear throughout GRA. In addition, I WILL answer tweets from classes reading FIAT during GRA (although it may be at night).
