I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for new sites for read-alouds.
I know that children need to be read to by a variety of sources.
- receptive language skills
- book to world connections
- reading interest and motivation
- love of reading
Other Read-Aloud Sources
- I always try to purchase my fave read alouds with the audio book included.
- The library is also a great source for audio books.
- Why not ask your support staff to read to your students.
- Parent volunteers often have loads of experience reading to their own children, they are a great resource.
- Invite parents who don’t volunteer on a regular basis to read each afternoon for a week.
- Buddy up with an older grade and invite them to come read to small groups, or individuals.
All of these experiences will add interest and also increase student engagement and the wonder of reading.
