Official Global Read Aloud 2016 Map #GRA16

Because locations were deleted I have now locked the official map and added ONE marker per state or country that is participating.  That means that these markers are not for individual sites , but instead just for geographical location.

Map for specific groups:

For Lauren Castillo:

For The BFG:

For Pax:   Ts tell us where you are from! Map for us to show Ss where kids are reading



Add Your Location to the Map (And Your Activities!) #GRA14

I apologize for the lateness of this this year, but the map is finally ready.  I even tried to post an earlier map and that failed, so please add your location or link to your classroom on our official Google Map for the year.

To add yourself to the map, click the link and then add your address in the bar and click return, it should then come up with the marker – click on that marker and say save to map.

Where are You on the Map?

Today I received an email from Laura and she writes:

I tried posting this to the blog, but was having difficulty this morning with the word verification part not completely showing on my screen.  Weird.  Anyway- about the global read aloud- 
Do you think we could create a Google Map with everyone’s school location and zoom in to street view to see their school? Here is an example on castles I found just so you can see what i mean if you’re not sure. Click on a castle…the while speech bubble looking thing has an option More and then click on Street View. Not every castle has street view so find one that does and you’ll see what I mean.

So that is what I did; here is our very own Google Map, it is up to you if you would like to add your school but I do think it will be a great map to show the students of just how connected we all are and where we all are!

To add your school, click on the link and then do a search for your school.  When your school comes up you should click on the highlighted name and then there should be a “Save to…” button.  Select the Global Read Aloud Map.

Let me know if this works or not.

(I also plan on doing a pushpin map in my classroom)
