Interactive Read Alouds - an email series


Hey there! How's your summer going? If you're anything like me, your brain is finally in summer mode and you're doing some self-care and enjoying the summer!

But.... I bet you're still thinking about school. Maybe just a little? It's ok. Teacher brains never really turn off and summer is our time to recharge and get ready for next year - and that means thinking about things we want to do differently this time around.

If you were to ask me what time of day I like best with my students, my answer would immediately be any time we are reading together! Reading aloud is a great time to build community, make connections and throw a little teaching in, as well.

What if I told you I have a way to make those read alouds more purposeful - more focused... while still be engaging? Say hello to interactive read alouds!

"Reading aloud with children is known to be the single most important activity for building the knowledge and skills they will eventually require for learning to read."—Marilyn Jaeger Adams

The research is there. Reading aloud is important. And not just any kind of read alouds. The best read alouds encourage students to look closely at the text and carefully analyze what they are reading. This kind of read aloud is what makes a difference (Serravallo, 2012.)

So, exactly what IS an interactive read aloud? How is it different from other read alouds? And how can you use them in your classroom?

Great questions.

And I've got the answers!

I've put together a short email series - it's FREE! - to get you started with using interactive read alouds in your classroom. 

We'll talk about what interactive read alouds are and why they work. And we'll work together on planning a read aloud for you to use with your kiddos.

And to top it all off - I've got a free interactive read aloud already planned and ready for you to use in your classroom - just for my IRA email subscribers.


Are you ready to find out more? You can join the read aloud fun by clicking {HERE}  or on the button below.


That's all there is to it! The emails are short and they won't come every day. Who has time for that in the summer? Read them at your own pace and learn a little more about how to increase the value of read alouds in your classroom.

Happy reading!
