The Magic of Read Aloud
We are reading Henry Huggins by Beverly Cleary...an old favorite! It is delightful and the children listen with attentive ears. Building on a good read aloud is easy. See below a packet of reading response, writing, language, vocabulary and math activities to go along with this book.
You can read this book as a read aloud...in my opinion, the best way! as Cleary writes with easy to read verse and each chapter builds to a frenzy. Your kids will ask you to read the next chapter and won't let you skip the read aloud. You know a book works when that happens. This book is also great to use in a reading group or independent reading. Lots of places to stop and share good writing. Children learn to write from the great authors they read. It's just a great book...an oldie but still captures the reader.
Enjoy the story and check out my literature pack for this book HERE.
Have a wonderful October!
