Reading Aloud

Materials

  • Book
  • Cassette tape recorder
Directions

Children should be encouraged to read aloud. They also like to listen while someone else reads to them. In order for oral reading to be a comfortable experience, it should be practiced before it is performed.

  1. Choose a short story or a part of a longer story that you would like to read aloud.
  2. Practice reading the paragraphs with the cassette tape recorder.
  3. Play back your reading and repeat recording until it sounds okay.
  4. This is particularly helpful if you have been asked to read in front of your class or to an audience.
  5. If you have had a chance to practice reading aloud, you will feel much more at ease when it is your turn to do it.
Note: Readers' Theater is another avenue for children who like to read aloud. Investigate if your school has a program or start a group with your friends.
