I’m going to start doing read alouds on Zoom for the students. Any recommendations for upper elemetary? Maybe something uplifting to help battle the anxiety they might be feeling?

It’s probably not a big risk, but just wanted to warn you 😁

I did live zoom read aloud with my kids. I wish I had chosen something easier, but we read Call of the Wild. Then we watched the movie together on zoom after the last day of school. It wasn't mandatory, but we all still wanted to have contact. If we end up streaming this year, I am going to pick something much more light-hearted.
