Global Read Aloud, Week 1

Kindergartners, first, second, and third graders all participated in the first week of the Global Read Aloud. Along with children across the world, we read Chopsticks written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by Scott Magoon.

We used our schema (background knowledge) to make inferences. And we laughed. A lot. After the song "Chopsticks" was referenced in the book, we listened and watched the following YouTube video. 

We also discussed our favorite parts of the book with other students around the world via Twitter.

We asked the author, Amy Krouse Rosenthal, how many books she’s written and she responded to our question:

Next week we will read and discuss Duck! Rabbit! and continue to collaborate with other students across the world.
