1) Read the classroom situations below. Which example is a better model of the correct way to read aloud to children?
a. Ms. Katie is reluctantly reading The Cat in the Hat to her toddlers for the third time this week. She knows her students absolutely adore the story. Annoyed with its repetitiveness, she flies through the book without doing any voices. She ends the story time with, “okay kids, outside time”.
b. Mr. James begins read aloud time with his preschoolers by taking a picture walk of Horton Hears a Who! He challenges his students to make a prediction of what they think is going to happen. He reads slowly and uses gestures to act out the scenes. When finished, he has a connecting lesson that extends what they are learning.
