Room 21 is Participating in the Global Read Aloud!!!!
Room 21 is participating in the Global Read Aloud 2019!!! We will be reading 5 pictures books by Yuyi Morales along side a Grade 1 Spanish Dual Language class from Boise, Idaho. To get to know our GRA friends in Boise, we wrote a letter to them on Winnipeg postcards to introduce ourselves and ask them questions about themselves in Spanish. We began with planning what we wanted to write by writing down ideas as a class. Then we started our drafts in our “Taller de Escritores” notebooks, revised and then edited our letters to our Grade 1 pen-pals. When we were done editing, we published a good copy on a Winnipeg postcard and then sent them in the mail. We were all very excited to send letters to our pen-pals!!! We are also very excited to get letters in the mail from our pen-pals! We cannot wait!!!
