Title of event/project:
Getting to Know Each Other - Around the World
URL to project/event starting point:
LitWorld empower s children to author lives of independence, hope and joy. Our programs build self-confidence, promote leader ship, and strengthen children and their communities. LitWorld’s programming cultivates a new generation of women leaders, storytellers, and academic achievers, effecting change for themselves, their communities, and their world. In this sample session we will be modeling two parts of our LitClub, the Read Aloud and our Core Activity. This is a great tool to learn about friends in your classroom, club, or community.
Project/event directions for participation:
Participants will need to click on the Google Hangouts link. We will be modeling and discussing tips and strategies for a great read aloud in both Spanish and English. These strategies can be used by both teachers in the classroom as well as parents. The second part is a signature LitWorld activity that uses the child's own story to guide interaction and build ties between participants. We will be posting our work on http://padlet.com/diandramalahoo/LitWorld_GettingToKnowEachOther so we can collaborate and learn about our friends around the globe.
