About World Read Alouds

Utilizing Flipgrid, you can provide a fun and differentiated version of read alouds to your students. Setting up the story page prompts with Google Slides, you can send the Grid to other classes and people from around the world to read/record their page to help build the story. Following the conclusion of the story, you can download and build your story through the app BookCreator. The project can be taken a step further, when you allow students to research the locations and distances between page to page. To see how to possibly setup a story on Flipgrid, you can checkout: To watch and view the finished stories, you can watch them here:

About Night Zookeeper’s Global Readers Theater

Teaming up with to bring classrooms from all around the globe to take part in one readers theater play. We have taken one large script and broke it down into nine scenes to be released every two weeks via Flipgrid. Each week, the scene will include the script along with custom-made printable masks of the related characters. Each will hopefully then be recorded on green screen, which will allow us to put in the scene background no matter where the video comes in from. If you would like to take part and/or see the scenes that have come in you can find everything at:

About Flipgrid Morning Meeting Mystery Grid

You might have heard of Mystery Skypes, but have had trouble finding the time or time zone that works for your class. With Morning Meeting Mystery Grids, it allows you to connect to anyone and everyone through Flipgrid. The Mystery guest records a brief introduction, which kicks off the fun. During the next Morning Meeting, you can have a discussion on what are good yes/no questions that will help us narrow down the map and help find out where they are located. Once you have come up with five good starter questions, record and reply to the introduction video. You repeat these steps as the responses come in throughout the week(s). If you’d like to see what this looks like, you can find examples here: the FizzicsEd Podcast
