(March 7th, 2012 was World Read Aloud Day. I’m the WRAD advocate from Vermont, and planned all day activities to celebrate and support reading at my school. I was interviewed by Litworld, the organization that coordinates World Read Aloud Day. Below is the post, followed by a link to the full interview. Join us for this great event next year!)
Katy is a teacher, and she’s getting all her students involved in World Read Aloud Day. All this week, her sixth graders are creating bookmarks that support reading as a life changer. They will sell these bookmarks on March 7-9, to support Litworld and global literacy. On World Read Aloud day, her class will read aloud to every elementary student at Rumney Memorial School throughout the day.
