World Read Aloud Day

Mrs. Breeze, our guest reader, reads aloud to us from Fish In A Tree, by Lynda Mullaly Hunt.
Today was World Read Aloud Day.  To celebrate, we had a guest reader, our district literacy coordinator, Jen Breeze, read to us from our read aloud book, Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt.  Mrs. Breeze had read both One for the Murphy's (our Global Read Aloud Book), and Fish in a Tree, so she was the perfect guest!  We are thankful she could make time to read to us!

Then, to celebrate the power of the spoken and written word, we created a quote wall.  Students researched their favorite quote or quotes that were meaningful to them, and we put them all together.

I showed students examples of some of my favorite quotes.
Students use their iPads to research quotes. 

Students hang up qutoes.

The finished product!
