I could profess my love for read aloud all day long...and fact, I basically did in this post from last year. It has always been my favorite part of the school day, and I whole heartedly believe in its importance in helping kids establish a love of reading. Sharing wonderful books together as a classroom community--what could be better? I swear, I would spend an hour on read aloud if I could every day! I am loving my class's current read aloud, and although we are not QUITE finished (sooo this post is kind of cheating...), we will most likely finish this week. I'm excited to share it with you! (Check out a list of some of my favorite read alouds for intermediate grades here.)
What have been your favorite read alouds this year? So far, I've only finished Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and Superfudge with my class. Our schedule is making read aloud reeeally tricky to squeeze in. I try to do it every day, but some days are only 5 minutes, so we haven't finished as many books as I'd like. I'm torn between Out of My Mind and Double Dog Dare for my next one!
What have you been reading this week?
