Last week we finished reading The Fourteenth Goldfish by Jennifer Holm. It was a great book and what made it even better was the connections our class was able to make through the Global Read Aloud Project. Over the past six weeks, our class has interacted with other students around the world who have been reading the same book. Today we were able to watch a live Google Hangout between the author, Jennifer Holm and the organizer of the Global Read Aloud, Pernille Ripp. We were able to submit questions last week to hopefully be answered by Jennifer Holm. We were shocked and excited that she answered two of our questions live during the hangout!
The hangout was recorded and is embedded below. What a great global experience for our fifth graders!
