Second Graders Take Part in Global Reading Project

Collegiate 2nd Grade teachers Samantha Huber and Beth Albrecht are participating in the 2017 Global Read Aloud, a project created in 2010 with a simple goal in mind: one book to connect the world. This year's book is Fenway and Hattie by Victoria J. Coe. Fenway is a dog that sees the world in a different view. The book is helping the two classes discuss what can happen when we simply change our perspective.
This week, both classes communicated via Skype with a 2nd Grade class in Humble, Texas. Students asked questions and shared information about their schools. The 2nd Graders also asked about the Houston area and how the community was doing after the hurricane. The classes will continue to Skype with other schools around the world as they read this story.
