Mae Among the Stars

8:00 AM

Hi! I'm Meredith from Gore's Globetrotters. I'm always on the hunt for a great picture book to incorporate into my Science and Social Studies instruction, so I was thrilled when I came across Mae Among the Stars by Roda Ahmed. 

I bought this book a while ago, but had it set aside for later in the school year.  My Science instruction during the last quarter of school is all about the sun, moon, and stars. I'm definitely missing all of the fun classroom activities that come with this topic, but I've found a few ways to still share them with my students. 

One way I have tried to connect with my students during this time is by sharing read aloud videos. Here's how I do this:
  • Record the video on my phone
  • Upload it to YouTube as "Unlisted"
  • Run the link through Safe YouTube
  • Share the private link with my parents
I created a Google Form for students to respond to the message of the story and answer a few quick questions. I have loved reading their responses!
