Read Alouds for First Grade

More thoughts on Read Aloud from author Jim Trelease:
A school’s objective should be to create lifetime readers—graduates who continue to read and educate themselves throughout their adult lives. But the reality is we create schooltime readers—graduates who know how to read well enough to graduate. And at that point the majority take a silent vow: If I never read another book, it’ll be too soon.

  • During repeat readings of a predictable book, occasionally stop at a key phrase and allow the child to provide the words.
  • Remember: The art of listening is an acquired one. It must be taught and cultivated gradually—it doesn’t happen overnight.
  • Remember that reading aloud comes naturally to very few people. To do it successfully and with ease you must practice.
  • The most common mistake in reading aloud—whether the reader is a seven-year-old or a forty-year-old—is reading too fast. Read slowly enough for the child to build mental pictures of what he just heard you read. Slow down enough for the children to see the pictures in the book without feeling hurried. Reading quickly allows no time for the reader to use vocal expression. 
  • Preview the book by reading it to yourself ahead of time. Such advance reading allows you to spot material you may wish to shorten, eliminate, or elaborate on.
