Read Aloud

Do you know just how important it is to read out loud to your students? The many benefits of a read aloud include building listening and comprehension skills, increasing vocabulary foundation, improving memory, increasing language skills, and much more.

Start the year off with the right read-aloud for back-to-school. One of my personal favorites is The Teacher from the Black Lagoon by Mike Thaler. Check out what the teachers on Education World are reading on their first day of school.

    Anna, my middle name is Batchelder! Not a common name for sure. My paternal grandmother was Ruth Batchelder in Maine.

    Back to read aloud! I agree that reading to children daily in the classroom is one of the most important activities you can do. I am a 4th grade teacher. I would also mention that just 10 minutes of reading to a child at home from birth to age 5 gives that child 300 hours of language enrichment! Not a bad investment for priceless memories!
