Class Tech Tips: World Read Aloud Day – March 4, 2015

This Wednesday is World Read Aloud Day!

On the first Wednesday in March each year readers from around the world come together to share their favorite stories. Started by LitWorld, World Read Aloud Day or WRAD is an amazing opportunity for students, teachers, parents and community members to come together for a read aloud. You can Skype with another class from around the world, invite a guest speaker to your classroom, or have students read aloud to one another.

LitWorld has lots of resources for classrooms and helpful information for your own learning environment. You can also follow along on social media with the hashtags #WRAD and #WRAD15 or participate in a Facebook chat with LitWorld’s founding director Pam Allyn and PBS.

Pick your favorite story and celebrate World Read Aloud Day on March 4, 2015!
