With the craziness and hype of the holidays and the end of the year, why not kick back, slow things down, take a break, and plan a family read aloud.
I remember how excited I’d feel when adults read aloud in my elementary classrooms. It was a party for my ears and my imagination. I’d have loved to be part of a family read aloud, but it never happened in our home.
As 2017 slides into view, start a new family tradition. Start a 20-minute read-aloud where everyone gathers to read, listen, and enjoy classic stories, jokes, adventure books, graphic novels, poetry, poetry and rhymes, folk tales, abc books and much more.
