Global Read Aloud/Springdale Sprint

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We celebrated a birthday today! Happy Birthday to Casey Ciocci, the big 1-0!

Please dont forget to bring in your donations for the SPRINGDALE SPRINT. The springdale sprint will take place this Friday, October 10th.

Tomorrow we will start our global read aloud! I am so excited for the kids to embark on this experience! The book we will be reading is “One for the Murphys” by Lynda Mullaly Hunt. We will be connecting through Skype with Mr. Sapia’s class over at Rippowam Middle School right here in Stamford. I have also set the class up on Edmodo, where we can have discussions.

We will also be discussing the book with Miss. Slocum, who is also a fifth grade teacher at Springdale.

The children do not get a copy of the text. I have decided to purchase an extra copy and raffle the book off in class! The book will be theirs to keep and to enjoy here in school or at home. If you would like to purchase your own copy, please feel free to do so. They are $8.00 at Barnes and Noble. Please note that it is NOT NECESSARY to purchase a copy. Any activity we do with the global read aloud does not require the kids to have their own copy. Good luck to our raffle participants!

The cover of the book is below as well as the book trailer. Enjoy!

  1. Ms Gray- The paperback version is priced at $4.39 on Amazon, with free Prime shipping. I am buying a copy for Dhruv and would be happy to order more if anyone else wants a copy.
