Importance of Read Aloud
Children in families with incomes below the poverty line are less
likely to be read aloud to every day than are children in families with
incomes at or above the poverty line. 38% of children in families in
poverty were read to every day in 1999, compared with 58% of
children in families at or above the poverty line*
Read aloud:
 Models reading fluency for students and introduces them to new
 Encourages making inferences as children anticipate and listen
for an outcome
 In addition, studies show that children who are read to regularly
outperform others in decoding, comprehension and active
language abilities.(Cobb County Schools website)
 Has the ability to reach students with multiple learning styles.
