We begin our school year with a class read aloud. This allows the teachers to practice the gradual release model by reading the book as students follow along, modeling think alouds, discussing character development, making personal connections, writing about reading, appreciating different cultures and so much more. The Home of the Brave also is a wonderful way to introduce figurative language and vocabulary (which is difficult for our ELLs and lower reading level students). This read aloud also instills the Book Club Norm expectations for the rest of the year. Readers become better readers by reading, book clubs include the discussions that open the windows to comprehension and deeper understanding. Book clubs also creating excitement about reading, and build life long readers.
