Transcript of Interactive Read Alouds

What is an Interactive Read Aloud?
Interactive Read Aloud is "A teaching context in which students are actively listening and responding to a text."

- Fountas and Pinnell

"Reading to children is the most effective literacy instruction you can provide. As you read aloud you demonstrate how to think and act like a reader; you also provide insights into writing because you are sharing a meaningful, coherent piece of written language that an author has constructed."

- Matching Books to Readers-
Interactive Read Aloud
Read Aloud
A teacher carefully chooses and plans a read aloud in order to help students reinforce and practice their reading skills

A time when the teacher models reading skills and fluency

A time when students are engaged in the text while practicing reading skills
A time for kids to sit and listen for pure enjoyment or fun

A time where the teacher does all of the work and students sit passively

A story that does not have a planned focus or teaching skill
Exposing Children to all aspects of reading on a daily basis
Provides an interactive experience where students are engaged and have the opportunity to practice reading skills
An authentic demonstration of what careful readers need do to comprehend texts and share their thinking
Provides time for students to have purposeful conversations with their peers and demonstrate their thinking about the text

Plan a time during the day that is seperate from your reader's workshop block
Plan for at least 15-20 minutes for an IRA
Read aloud several times a day, however, at least
times a week for interactive read alouds with accountable talk.

Choosing your Text
You are now ready to plan and implement your Interactive Read Aloud!....

Planning your Interactive Read Aloud
Consider how the text can support or lead the reading work you want your students to learn and use during independent reading.
Preparing What to Teach
Based on your students' needs and reading units choose the reading skills and strategies that would best fit.

Using the
Continuum of Literacy Learning
by Fountas and Pinnell or the Common Core Reading Standards can be very helpful in planning the skills.

Using your anecdotal records and in class observations can also help guide your instruction.
Practicing your
Interactive Read ALoud

Sit down and read your chosen text.

Pay attention to your "inner reader" and thinking going on inside your head.

When you notice yourself using a skill that you want your students to practice, jot it down on a post it, and place it on the page.

You also plan stops where you want students to practice the skill.

NOTE: Model your thinking and use "stops" only on places that are necessary. (Too many pauses disrupts the flow of the story and you will lose the interest of the students.)
Decoding strategies
Story elements
Teaching about different genres
Comprehension Strategies
Partnerships and Book Clubs
One on one conferencing, small group, whole group conversations
Students' Roles
Stop and Jot:
Stop and write in a reading notebook, on a sticky note, or on a note card in response to a teacher prompt.

Stop and Sketch
: Stop and sketch what you visualize in one part of the book.

Turn and Talk
: Talk to a partner about a prompt given, Cooperative partners, knee to knee, model, teach, and practice.

Stop and Act:
With a partner, dramatize a scene or part of a scene.
(facial expressions, thinking bubbles, speech bubbles, thumbs up

Think Aloud:
The teacher models his or her thinking to give the students an image of the kind of thinking one person has in a particular part of the book.

Texts should...
be high interest level and engaging
help enhance the reading experience
provide authentic conversational starters
provide opportunities for higher level thinking and talking

Why use interactive read aloud?
Why is student
interaction important?
These interactions provide support for the kind of work that the children do when they are reading and thinking about their books during independent reading and for the kinds of talking children will do when they meet with a partner or book club talk time.
