An interactive read-aloud maximizes language and literacy learning but also requires the teacher's undivided attention (of course!). How can budding readers receive additional opportunities to hear and enjoy books--beyond the time they have with their teacher? Read To Me provides a cheery, bright webpage full of professional readings of children's books by actors and other notables. This beautiful, dynamic website will surely inspire your students to develop a love of books.
For optimal enrichment, the books could be checked out from the library and in students' hands as they watch and listen. Further, the Read To Me opportunity could follow a teacher's interactive read-aloud, as we know that repeated readings benefit students in multiple ways as well.
