Favorite Read-Alouds

Read-aloud is a huge part of our classsroom.  It is the one story that we are all involved in and following.  Below I am listing some of my (and my students) favorite read-alouds. I am also including some that I use during CAFE to model reading skills.

     I have so many more!  I love reading aloud!  The kids like to just sit and listen.  It is a great way to introduce new skills, genres, and authors to students.  Almost always, when I am done reading a book, no matter how hard or easy it is, students want to read it independently!  That works for me.

Join the Linky party over at Learning with Mrs. Parker to find other great read-alouds!

Hi Jennifer,

I'm SO glad that you're reading aloud to third graders!!! I keep an updated Books That Teach list on my school website if you're interested in some fun new read-alouds mixed in with a few oldies but goodies:

I love a lot of your book recommendations. I have a few first graders reading Little Ant right now. It is a great story. Thanks for sharing your picks with us.
