I LOVE read alouds!
It makes me incredibly sad there isn't more time for them.
In my classroom we are always working through a chapter book together, but some times it takes us longer to get through one than others.
This week we had a few extra minutes so I grabbed up our current book and began to read.
The chapter was SO stinkin' funny that I couldn't read I was laughing so hard.
My laughter made the students laugh and we all sat their for several minutes snickering about our book. It's moments like this that make my students think I am CRAZY.
But it's also moments like this that help students understand that reading can be FUN. FUN. FUN.
I don't want students to think that reading is boring or something you just have to do at school. I want my students to leave my room knowing that reading can be fun. I hope our laughing moment helped put a little spark in their brains that it really can be both fun and FUNNY!
What were we reading?
"Wayside Gets a Little Stranger"
If you haven't read the Wayside books with your kids… do it now!
They will be on the edge of their seats the entire time.
What are your favorite read alouds?
I'd LOVE some ideas!
