A Round of Applause: One Book One School

Standard

Mr. Schu (@MrSchuReads) has been traveling around the country giving away copies of The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate (@kaaauthor).  Today he posted this video created by students and staff at Harvard Elementary School who are reading The One and Only for their One Book, One School campaign.

A big round of applause for the students and staff of Harvard Elementary!  The excitement in this video is contagious, and if you haven’t already read this book, this video will make you want to run out and read it immediately.  What strikes me is how everyone got involved in the video, and how, clearly, this book and the making of this video brought everyone in the school together.  The planning must have been extensive, but it is so worth it!  I hope that Harvard Elementary inspires a series of spin-off videos from other elementary schools… I would LOVE to see Eden Hall be one of those schools…
