Cover of The Invention of Hugo Cabret
PA Leadership Council member and 4th grade teacher, Erik Wittmer, is seeking elementary classes for a flat classrooms-style collaborative book blog project. Here are the details. Contact Erik if you are interested in having your class participate.
I have been putting together a project that I am hoping becomes a national project and need your help in spreading the word to anyone who might be interested. The beginning of the year, I read The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. My 4th graders were so interested in my reading more, we finished the book in three weeks. A week later, four of my students were reading the book themselves and the trend continues as the weeks go on.
This is why I would like to start collaborating with other classrooms throughout the world to read this amazing book. I have set up a blog at http://hugocabretbookblog.
blogspot.com/. If you are interested, you can email me at email@example.com or post a comment on the blog. We will be starting the project on February 23rd.
