I just stumbled upon a very interesting website that I want to share with you. The particular page I’m sharing today is about read alouds. You may be aware that I love read alouds and find that they have a wonderful place in home education. I know that some of my children’s favorite memories of homeschooling include our read alouds.
One of my keys when reading was to give each character their own voice. When I read The Wilder King Triology, which I highly recommend, and I got to the third book, I came up to another new character/group of characters, and was at a loss as to what voice to give them. I ended up going with a very southern twang. Tiffany says that is how she reads it every time still.
This page has some ideas on how to keep kids attention and quiet during read alouds. I intend to spend some more time looking over the website, it looks interesting.I hope it is helpful to you.
Until next time, God bless,
