I’m doing the author study. Will there be a breakdown for this unit? I have never had a classroom on twitter but was considering this outlet for sharing. Or would I use the account for GRA to share?
Fern Hill Elementary
West Chester Area School District
Here is the link with the choices for AKR – I will add it in the post as well. There is no official GRA account, only the hashtag so you would use your own account to tweet but then add the hashtag for others to see what you have said. I hope that helps. https://theglobalreadaloud.com/2015/06/08/choices-for-global-read-aloud-2015-gra15/
I’m new to GRA and fairly new to twitter. I would love to connect with you and your class! I will be doing the author study with my kindergartners. A new learning experience for us all! Excited and a bit nervous… @UWEkinders
Great, thanks! SO excited and eager to start! 🙂
what is the start date… I must have missed that ! 🙂
Hi…Is it necessary for the book to be read aloud, or is it just important to do the reading during the week? I want to do this but finding time to read aloud will be difficult
Yes, you should plan on reading aloud to students during the 6 weeks. You can take longer than that if needed. Does that answer your question?
I was thinking about doing this as an after school “book club” for 3rd-4th graders. Do you think that would work if I read aloud and then gave them time to comment on what we’ve read one day each week?
Absolutely, make it work for you!
Do we start reading the author study books the week of October 5th, or 6 weeks prior?
No, you start with the first book the first week so October 5th and then follow the schedule from there.
Could some of the read aloud days be via an audio CD?
Up to you, there are many right ways to do this.
I plan to participate in the Billy Miller Global Read Aloud on October 5. Are there certain times of the day that we need meet to discuss on Twitter? What should be read to my class by that date? Would you clarify what should be done by October 5th please? I’m new to Global Read Aloud and Twitter.
Nothing should be done by the 5th because it doesn’t kick off until then. The Twitter chats are all throughout the week so you just read the chapters assigned for the week and jump in when it fits by searching for the hashtag for the slowchat for the week – #grabilly1, #grabikky2 and so on depending on the week we are in,
Are there any discussion questions online that people are using for “The Year of Billy Miller”?
Not that I have seen, however, on the Edmodo group there is a lot of stuff shared
This looks GREAT and I’ve love to participate, BUT we have already started a RA, which we are halfway through, and I’m in a bit of tech overload right now. I am wondering if you will have another opportunity in the year?
BTW – love the Fish in a Tree blurb though – so might do it after we finish the current book anyway, even if it’s too late for this project!
It is only once a year unfortunately because it is a lot of work. However, all of the resources will be available after.
IS it possible to join and start on say… October 19th? Or is it too late? Will it be possible to find someone to connect with this late? I have a first grade class. If so, What book should we read
Others are starting late as well so yes, you can. I would do the picture book author study.
Hello! I have just heard about your AMAZING group! I joined but am so late! I’m afraid I won’t be able to start until the first week of November 😜 as I need to get the books and such! Is there anyone else starting out this late? Please feel free to contact me so we can connect! 😊 Next year I’ll be sure to start on time!
