"My Father's Dragon" Book Club

"My Father's Dragon" by Ruth Stiles Gunnett was one of my childhood favorite books. Every year I read this book to my first graders.
I was so excited when I found out that a first grade teacher from my Twitter PLN, Jenna Dixon (@JennaVDixon) also read this book to her first grade class. We thought this would be a perfect opportunity to have a mini-Global Read Aloud collaboration. So... here is what we are thinking.

When & what to read?--- Starting on Monday, April 14, we will read a chapter a day.
How do we collaborate?--- via Twitter using #1bc14 (short for 1st grade book club:)
What do students share? --- Anything they want to discuss and share about the book; students can ask each other questions, visualize what is happening in the story, make predictions, etc.

There is no need to sign up for this project, but if you fill out this form I will make sure to follow you or your class.

We are looking forward to reading this book with you!
