Interactive read-aloud is a great vocabulary building activity. If you're not excited and intentional about reading, the students will not be engaged. Whether it is our anchored text that we are reading all week or just the daily read aloud I like to make sure that my students are enriched in literacy through my reading. In my classroom you never know what or who you will see reading a book. I will share ideas with you on how I work vocabulary and themes into my read alouds to allow deeper thinking and meaningful takeaways. Students learn to be better readers, storytellers and conversationalists through interacting with the teacher and the story. I will offer my favorite themes, read alouds, strategies, activities, and ways to engage students. Join me for lots of fun and engaging ideas!
