Tip: Student Read Alouds
How do I do it?
When K-Adult students read aloud it helps them to build oral fluency and practice of oral language in the target language. There are many ways that students can read aloud:
- Have a student read aloud to a stuffed animal, to a cut-out of a famous person glued to a popsicle stick
- Have a student read with a puppet in hand (the puppet will be making mistakes, not the student)
- Have students read aloud into a voice recorder
- A student reads aloud to a peer or best friend or to a small group of peers
- If a student is ready, they can read a short selection aloud to the whole class.
- Students can read a word wall or text projected and enlarged on a screen with a pointer and a partner, taking turns
Variations & Extensions
Students can read aloud as a news reporter; with a fake microphone; or whisper read aloud etc.
