Read Aloud Day

Reading aloud isn't just for little kids - it's for all ages! 

For 13 years, World Read Aloud Day has called attention to the importance of sharing stories by challenging participants to grab a book, find an audience, and read-aloud! The global effort, created by the non-profit LitWorld and sponsored by Scholastic, is celebrated annually in over 173 countries and is all about bringing people together through the shared connection of reading aloud in all of our communities.

Today, Tamarac celebrated by teachers reading aloud to their students in class. Take a peek below at some excerpts and video clips. (We may or may not have a big Gordon Korman fan base at Tamarac!) Be sure to check out Facebook page for a LIVE video of Mrs. King reading to Pre-K.

Mrs. Furlong read The SuperTeacher Project by Gordon Korman 

Mrs. Whalen read The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne

Mrs. Jewell read The Fort by Gordon Korman
