World Read Aloud Day
February 1, 2018
Mrs. Nancy Lasher and her Science students participated in the 2018 World Read Aloud Day on February 1, 2018. Each year, World Read Aloud Day motivates learners to celebrate the power of words and stories and going global connects students nationally and worldwide.
Mrs. Lasher coordinated a Skype connection with a 5th grade class in Derry Cooperative School District in Derry, NH. The students in both classes took turns reading and sharing pictures with each other. Mrs. Lasher’s students read AAAArrggh! Spiders and Anansi Does the Impossible! – two captivating stories about spiders.
After each class shared two of their favorite stories, they shared interesting facts about their school, city and state. The interaction between the students was very genuine, intrigued by seeing students different but very much alike in their school environment.
The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Cleveland is joining in on this exciting event to learn basic computer science and have fun learning code while playing Minecraft, Star Wars and Moana!
