This month we are reading books from the Australian author Mem Fox. We are participating in The Global Read Aloud, and will be reading her books together with other students all over the world. Students everywhere love to read, and we want to join with them in getting to know some of her wonderful books.
The settings and the characters in her stories teach us so much about the beauty of the country of Australia. Let’s talk about what we know about Australia, what we want to know and what we learn as we explore her books this month. We will share our ideas on a Padlet: an online sticky notepad.
