My kids LOVE a good Mo Willems story! 🙂 Elephant and Piggie are a HIT with my firsties!
Another series that my kids can’t get enough of?
Pete the Cat!
This is HUGE! I do it with EVERY character driven read aloud. Every one, Tamara? Yes. Every. One.
The kids LOVE it, and they pattern the sound of their character voices off of mine! It gives them an idea of what they ‘could’ do!
Check out this neat video of two of my littles during Read to Someone time! 🙂

If you are not the most expressive reader, make sure that you have a great listening center that features readers who DO use different voices for the characters. If you don’t have cassette tapes or CD’s…there are programs like Raz-Kids and Tumble Books that feature wonderful readers.
I love listening to Robert Munsch read his own books! So do the children! Click HERE to go to his website and hear one of my personal favorites, 50 Below Zero!
That’s all for this week! 🙂
Come back next week for a chat about improving your students’ rate of speed!
