Parent’s Guide To “Read Alouds” by Ms. Beth
2. Pay attention to your Body Movements and Facial Expressions
Your eyes are key to conveying emotion and excitement
Your voice: let the words on the page guide you and use a variety of vocals- loud and soft, fast and slow and don’t forget to p-a-u-s-e!
3. The beginning – important to grab them from the first sentence
4. The end should be like the “Amen” at a church service. Finish slowly and think about leaving them with a sense of “happily ever after.”
Things to Remember:
There’s no right or wrong in approach or technique.
Be yourself – everyone has their own special way to read a story aloud!
