Family Read Aloud Night
Fun Ideas for Home and School
Monday’s book post had nonfiction books that beginning readers can read and enjoy. A few weeks ago, I posted about fiction books for beginning readers. So here’s an idea: hold a Family Read Aloud Night!
Here are a few ideas to consider:
Everyone chooses a book he/she likes to read. It may be a picture book, an early reader, or a chapter book from which you only read an excerpt.
Make it an official event! Make up a program with the readers and books.
Choose a book that everyone can comfortable read and take turns reading from it.
Readers can make posters of their books.
Have refreshments—either for participants to eat (quietly) while listening, or for after everyone has had a chance to read.
Make it a once-a-week event!
