Participate in World Read Aloud Day

World Read Aloud Day is March 7, 2012.  This day is sponsored by Litworld which is  a nonprofit organization working to eliminate illiteracy in our world.  You can determine how you want to participate in this day.  My class is going to participate, but I am going to try to talk my whole 3rd grade team to participate.  I am hoping to have a guest reader from our community come in, and possibly to have a guest reader through the Internet as well.  I am still brainstorming ideas of what to do that afternoon.  We will be doing Day 2 of our state testing on that morning, so I am thinking that we will dedicate the whole afternoon to read aloud!  Sounds like fun to me!

If you would like to learn more, or to sign up for updates, go to the Litworld website.
