Read Alouds

2016-2017 Room 7  Read Alouds

I am very committed to reading each day with your children.  Research has proven the important role that reading/hearing stories plays in future success.  Compiled here will be a list of books we have read aloud.  My hope is that when you visit the library with your children these may be titles that they want to read or listen to again. These books will be great conversation starters with your children about the stories we are sharing in school. Discussing books also builds comprehension.  I will update this list as much as possible, so check back for more titles.  Happy Reading!
