“Sending Some Love” Holiday Book Recording Project

The Center for Educational Excellence in Alternative Settings is promoting “Sending Some Love: Holiday Book-Recording Project.”  Children record themselves reading a book aloud, and the book and recording will then be sent to a younger child — whether a sibling or a child  at a daycare center or other setting.  The project aims to give children who are removed from their community “an opportunity to share, give thanks, and combat their feelings of loneliness and isolation during the holidays.”  It also, obviously, helps the juveniles with their reading.

This is a project that does not need to focus on the holidays.  Students could generate these recordings anytime of the year to share with younger children, and stay connected to others.
