Read Aloud Importance & Freebie

Reading aloud a story is a powerful tool in the classroom when helping children learn to read.  Your goal in the classroom with a read aloud is to demonstrate to your students that reading isn't just about learning...it's fun!

Mrs. Jump's Blog has "Book Talk Tuesday".   She has been SHARING some WONDERFUL stories to use in your classroom!  Make sure to check it out!!!

One way to help with classroom management during a story to go through "STORY BASICS" before you read!  It's easy....the students will echo what you say!

Read Aloud! Read Aloud! Read Aloud!  It is NEVER a waste of your teaching time!
