The Power of Read Alouds
Reading aloud helps students learn how to use language and retain key points of the story. It improves their information processing skills, vocabulary, and comprehension. As you read aloud, variations in your pitch, tone, pace, volume, pauses, and eye contact help produce a fluent and enjoyable delivery. The addition of questions and comments in your session, all provided in our downloadable lessons, helps create a more fulfilling experience for everybody!
