reading together across the pond

Did you know that March 6 is World Read Aloud Day?  Yeah, neither did I.  But, having an elementary school librarian for a mother allows you to learn these things.  And, having an innovative and passionate elementary school librarian for a mother, combined with enthusiastic and spontaneous colleagues and bosses, combined with smart and energetic students, allows you to do wonderful projects like this one:

The 4th and 5th graders from Peaslee Elementary School in Northborough, MA play the role of Cinderella, while one of my classes of primero de la ESO (7th grade) are the evil stepsisters.  This cross-cultural collaboration came together in less than a week, due to the hard work of the students and educators involved.  I must say, I’m quite proud of my kids!
