Adventures of Ai + TpT Giveaway

Monday, September 22, 2014

Are you an upper elementary or middle school teacher looking for a NEW read aloud or higher level read for one of your reading groups? Check out Craig Bouchard's The Adventures of Ai. This book is distributed globally by Apple, Google and Samsung. You could WIN your very own copy below :)

A quick description:

The unique story intertwines independence, strength and the determination required of kids today with unquenchable imagination. Art, history, poetry, music, and mathematics find their way into the dangerous journey of an eleven-year-old-Japanese girl in search of treasure and her father in the year 1514.  Released in six languages and distributed through one of the greatest 3D video games of 2014, The Adventures of Ai is a story of empowerment transcending global boundaries. 

I think using this as a read aloud would be so powerful. After downloading it to iBooks, I would project my iPad or computer screen for the whole class to see as I read. Since the story is very well written and contains such rich vocabulary, it would be incredibly effective to use as a mentor text to teach various writing skills. A FREE Adventures of Ai video game can even be downloaded from the iTunes store {HERE}. Talk about a story coming to life! Kids would L-O-V-E this!! Enter the Rafflecopter below to enter for a FREE copy and $10 to spend at my TpT store :)
