For Reading Out Loud Linky!
As I begin thinking about fall my thoughts go to one of my very favorite things about teaching...Reading out loud! I just realized tonight that this is the first summer I have not read a book aloud to my own children. Though my children are 13, 17, and a few days shy of 21 they still enjoy gathering together at the end of the day to read great literature together. We've enjoyed so many books over the years and share inside jokes about many of them...Do you know what whizzpopping is? My children loved the BFG and we still remember and laugh about it.
My own childhood was spent in a house where books were treasures that there was always mysteriously enough money or time at the library for. Owls in the Family, The Little House series were books I remember my mother reading to me.
So what is it going to be for you and your class this year? What is your first read aloud going to be? I am dying to know because I'm not sure what mine will be yet, so I need some ideas. Right now I'm leaning towards Ribsy. I love that dog!! Link up and tell me what some of the books are musts for the books you read aloud in your classroom!
