Ms. Darling has been sharing the book "Laugh with the Moon" by Shana Burg during her weekly read-alouds. The book is set in Malawi, Africa and Ms. Darling wanted her students to know more about the country and continent. So she created a Nearpod that allowed students to explore different countries, languages, flags, and facts as well as a virtual reality component exploring a rural dwelling and a countryside setting. Burg paints beautiful descriptions of main character Clare's new home, and Ms. Darling's Nearpod helped each student hold real-life images in her/his mind's eye as all listen and share the story together.
