WHY DO READ ALOUDS?
Don’t have time to facilitate an entire class novel to practice Literature and Informational Text standards? Try a read aloud with your students using a short children’s book! It’s amazing how many standards you can hit using a children’s book especially when you choose the RIGHT one no matter what grade level you teach.
Read alouds have so many benefits; most notably, establishing reading fluency in younger students. With Earth Day right around the corner, it’s a perfect opportunity to plan a lesson or activity using a read aloud!
