Read Alouds

"The single most important activity for building the knowledge required for success in reading is reading aloud to children. The second is that reading aloud is a practice that should continue throughout the grades."
Jim Trelease, Building a Nation of Readers ~ the classic education report based on hundreds of research studies.

Here are some of Mrs. Hall's favorite read alouds;
The Crossover by Kwame Alexander
Frindle by Andrew Clements
The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
Wonder by R J Palacio
The Boy Who Was Raised by Librarians by Carla Morris
