THE FOURTEENTH GOLDFISH

Global Read Aloud 2014

Welcome Readers! I am so excited about the journey we are about to take together.  For the next six weeks, readers from all over the world will be uniting over the same book to read, connect and collaborate with one another.  "Global collaboration is necessary to show students that they are part of something bigger than them. That the world needs to be protected and that we need to care for all people. You can show them pictures of kids in other countries but why not have them speak to each other? Then the caring can begin." (Pernille Ripp - creator of the Global Read Aloud)

Last week, we examined the front cover closely. We paid special attention to the title, illustrations and other textual clues. Now that we have read the first chapter, would you like to revise your prediction? Please explain.

What connections did you make while reading the first chapters?

I was way off with my perdition there are actually humans in it. I'm pretty sure that they will find the jelly fish(T-melvinus). I think that they will get another goldfish and it will get old. Then I think they will use T- melvenus.I hope that my perditions are correct.

Then, the thirteenth goldfish will regenerate, and Ellie will think that it's a fourteenth goldfish!
