Over the past few weeks, our team has been collecting read-aloud stories to share out with Hartford parents, educators, and others. This project is inspired in part by Hartford’s Kennelly School Twitter account which features a nightly 7:30pm read-aloud, where staff read a book to children on live video, which is also recorded (See: https://twitter.com/kennelly_school). Below you’ll find some read-aloud videos submitted by Trinity students, with more to come on this Youtube channel.
Are you a Hartford resident, community partner, or Trinity student, faculty or staff member interested in recording a video of your own? We’re especially interested in multi-lingual submitters for stories in languages including Spanish, Portuguese, French & Haitian Creole, Chinese (including Mandarin, Cantonese), ASL and others.
