It’s Wednesday, March 5, 2014, and time for Language Arts at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: 4-14 (Grades PreK-9, with parental supervision)
We located a wonderful list of recommended titles for reading aloud. It should be noted that even though there is a lot of good information here the purpose of this website is to sell books, though you are not required to purchase any. You can check out these titles at any library and still use them in the ways suggested.
When you get to this ad supported website, you’ll find an interesting article about reading aloud with older children. The article is written to classroom teachers and discusses the beginning of the school year but all of the information contained here is easily adapted to homeschoolers. Once you get past the article you’ll see a list of read aloud titles in order of age. Each title comes with a short synopsis of the book and springboard ideas to other reading selections. Some titles also have a list of more classroom activities – these are typically listed by age group. One of the things we like best about this list is that the author takes time to help the “instructor” (in this case, we, parents) to understand how and when to progress to more complex books.
Don’t stop on the Read Aloud page though. Book mark this site and come back often to use the many free resources for teaching children, preschool through middle school, across the curriculum.
