GRA 2K16

I am excited that my class has got to do the GRA this year. GRA stands for global read aloud, which is a way for schools around the world connect in a special way. Many schools around the world read the same book, and then talk with them about it with modern technology. My class has used Skype to talk with a class in Canada, and a website called Padlet to connect with other schools.

We are reading the book Orbiting Jupiter for the global read aloud. It is about a family bringing a kid named Joseph in as a foster child. He has a very interesting background, but you need to read the book to find out. It would be hard to have the same background as him, because his life has been very hard. 

At first, I didn't really think the GRA would be that amusing. It stayed that way through the beginning of the book. As we got going I was starting to really like the book. There are some very intense moments in the book. I really enjoy connecting with other schools around the world. You can here their perspective on the book, and share yours with them. I encourage you to do the global read aloud.

Welcome to my blog. On here I will talk about sports and my life. I also have a different page about my reading life. I will probably make different pages for different types of sports. I am excited to have you be with me on my blog. I will make weekly posts, but I might do it more often.

If you want to here about sports and the good stuff like that then you need to visit my blog. I am in many sports myself, and will tell you about my games. I have some interesting facts as well, which will be on my life page. Just for an example I know how to juggle. Thank you and please visit my blog.
