•  Dear Parents and Guardians,

         Below you will find a list of interactive read aloud books we have read in our classroom. Please ask your child to tell you about the book and our discussions. Through the interactive read aloud and discussions students have the opportunity to learn to think within the text, about the text and beyond the text.

         During this time we are getting to know and learn about authors, explore different genres, expand vocabulary, character traits, main idea, recognize themes, style and language. These skills are then transferred to their own reading and writing.

         If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
