    While teaching first grade, I found reading aloud to be a great stress relief for me as well as the students. The students really loved to listen to me read since I love to pretend to read in character and interact with them as I am reading. Behavior problems disappeared for 10 minutes! Gotta love it!

    Reflecting on my own education I recall being read to in third grade. My teacher would read out loud from Beverly Cleary’s Henry and the Paper Route (or other Henry Huggins books). She would read after tests or after we had completed tasks that required us to work silently at our desks. The fact that I remember this activity is proof enough that reading to your students works!

    We just had a read aloud the other day after another round of state testing. Even in 10th grade it’s a hit!
