Next week over two hundred T.E.S. families will kick-off our very first whole-school family read aloud. I am so excited! When I first started planning this I hoped for 20-30 families. I thought buying 50 books was going way over the top. Wow, did I underestimate our community.
Reading aloud is one of my favorite things to do with children. I love finding a good quality book that keeps them hooked until the very end. I won’t give away my favorites – as I’ve left them in the very capable hands of my fifth grade colleagues, but I am always on the search for new titles. Right now, I’m re-reading “classic” children’s literature in the hopes of finding our next family read aloud.
Along the way, I’ve come across numerous website with tips for reading aloud. Some are great, some just okay, but all are worth checking out. Enjoy!
