You Read to Me, I'll Read to You

This Monday I will be leading a workshop. I will be discussing poetry books and how they can be used to teach reading and writing fluency. Poetry is fun and kids love it! The newest book by Mary Ann Hoberman, You Read to Me, I'll Read to You: Very Short Scary Tales to Read Together, is quite appropriate for this time of year. This is a perfect book for shared reading or buddy reading. The poems are about mummies, skeletons, zombies, and trick or treat. What a great way to get kids to read without really realizing it is a learning experience. So try this book with your class or with your own children to build their reading fluency. Just try not to be scared!
