Favorite Read Aloud Linky!

A Little late, But I am linking up with Teaching Happily Ever After to share my Favorite read alouds!

Tikki Tikki Tembo Is my Ultimate favorite read aloud! The kids really love his long name, and when I read it I do a really funny accent that the kids think is really funny.

Caps for Sale is another favorite of mine. When I read this I sing the lines, "Caps, Caps for Sale fifty cents a cap!" and when we read the monkey part we act out what the monkeys are doing. The students love when I get so mad at the monkeys! 

The Grouchy Ladybug, isn't Eric Carle the greatest??? He was my favorite when I was a child and still my favorite to this day! Again, when I read this, I always get REALLY grouchy!

My kids always love this sneaky little spider!

There are soooo many more books that I love to share with my students! I think any book can be a great read aloud, its all about how you read it! I always use lots of expression when I read and really try to make it come to life. For some reason, I can not do read alouds sitting down. I have to be standing so I can move around and really get into it. I feel like I get into it as much or maybe more than the students do! I can't wait to see all the great read alouds you all are doing!
