Five Read Aloud Books to Try
This was a hard list to put together, so I thought I would just pick 5 of my favorite read aloud books. Maybe I’ll throw another 5 out there another day! I am excited about the read aloud I am starting next week, “Flutter”, but for now–here are 5 tried and true read alouds for middle elementary! It would be great if others would chime in with some other favorites!
|This is always my first read aloud of the year–it is a series of 4 books which I love because I can hook kids. It has MANY things to talk about, especially with respect to bullying and how people choose to handle bullying.|
Oh…The Tiger Rising
|I read this book three times before reading it aloud and disliked it each time. It was recommended to me as a part of our new literacy program and all our 4th grade teachers were reading it so I caved. My. Kids. Were. Captivated. We got into symbolism, comparing, character traits and more. My kids STILL say things like, “She is acting just like Sistine did!” and so on. Powerful story.
