World Read Aloud Day
I think everyday should be WRAD. It's one of my favorite things to do with my kids. I love to watch their faces, hear their reactions, and listen to their thinking as I read aloud. So much good comes from reading aloud. We are currently reading, Because of Winn Dixie by Kate diCamillo. To kick off WRAD we watched this video of Kate diCamillo sharing some of her favorite read aloud memories and explaining the importance of reading aloud.
Kate DiCamillo On Reading Aloud
What I remember most about elementary school is Mrs. Warlick, my 3rd grade teacher, reading aloud to us every day. It was such a special time for me as a learner. I want to provide that same experience for my students!
