On November 20, 2017, we had an event called Read Around the World at Jonathan Valley Elementary. Each teacher chose a book (with a global theme) to read aloud. Each teacher read their book to two different groups of students. Students were allowed to choose the teachers/books they wanted to hear and they signed up on posters in the lobby. Examples of some of the books that were read are:
“The Keeping Quilt” by Patricia Polacco
“The Umbrella” by Jan Brett
“My Grandfather’s Coat” by Jim Aylesworth
“14 Cows for America” by Carmen Agra Deedy
“Boundless Grace” by Mary Hoffman
and many others!!!
