Every day is a great day to read!  We love that teachers and students celebrate literacy and participate in epic collaborations like Read Across America Week and #WorldReadAloudDay. Whether your students are participating in a special event, reading at school or home, or enjoying a favorite book for the tenth time, here are some ways they can share their love of literacy on Flipgrid, 365 days of the year!

πŸ‰πŸ“–πŸ‰ Bring the magic of literature to life with Cressida Cowell, author and illustrator of the How to Train Your Dragon series! Register for the March 6th Skype experience and prepare your students with these ✨exclusive✨ ready to launch Flipgrid Disco Library topics.

πŸ”ŽπŸ“–πŸ” As your students explore literature, have them share their authentic reading lives with others. They can share a BookTalk, make book recommendations, connect text with Booksnaps, go Book Speed Dating, or participate in a March Madness Book Challenge!

πŸŽŸπŸ“–πŸŽŸ Share a reading experience with your favorite authors and invite them into your classroom for an extra special book connection via Guest Mode! Looking for inspiration? Check out Miss Nikki's Author Connection Grid or Connect with Authors and Storytellers to see which authors may be interested in participating.
