Reading Aloud To Children

I love reading aloud to my students and to my daughters. My wife and I even enjoy reading books aloud to each other. We read the whole Hunger Games Series that way! Check out this infographic below about the importance of reading aloud to literacy learners. Only 15 minutes a night can make a difference!

  1. Dear Mr. Pahl ,
    My favorite thing about reading aloud is that you could ask them what that word means and then you could understand the book.Sometimes my mom, opa, or oma reads aloud to me.I read aloud to my oma, opa, sister, brother, mom, and dad.Some of my favorite books to read aloud is Junie B. Jones or small books.

  2. Dear Mr. Pahl,
    Every night I read to my little sister before bedtime. And now because I read to her the books she can now read two hole pages! The best book my sister and I love is If You Give a Dog a Donut! Just like the book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie!

  3. Dear Mr. Pahl,
    I've never read aloud to children but my has read aloud to me! She read Heaven Is For Real Boys. It’s based on a true story about a kid who went to heaven and came back alive!

  4. Dear Mr. Pahl I love reading aloud because then I actually feel like people are listening to me. I also really love books because some books just really have feeling , like I really love series of scary storys to tell in the dark. Also I have a little sister that I read to , and she really loves the books I read her. Also my little sisters name is Emily and she is in first grade and she is learning how to read so I’m trying to help her learn that so I’m reading to her . Best Wishes , Hannah

  6. Dear Mr.Pahl,
    I read to my dog like he can understand what I am saying. Sometimes I pretend I’m a teacher and read to my stuffed animals. I know it sounds weird but its fun.
