Overheard {SOL Day 21: 3-21-15}



Recently overheard during read aloud time:



                            "I knew it!"

          "She always stops at the good points."

                                                 "Can you keep reading? Please...."

                    "What happens next?"

"Why does she always do that to us?  I can't stand the suspense!"

                                               "Are there other books by this author?"

             "I want to reread this book when we're done."



MUSIC TO MY EARS!!!

  1. How poetic! This makes me wonder, now that I'm on Spring Break what other conversations I could be overhearing. Maybe at the mall, the movies, or at book club. This challenge had opened my eyes. Thanks for opening my ears!

  5. I always loved those kinds of comments. One of my favourites though (spoiler alert!) was near the end of "Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane" and one little girl cried out, "But she can't die!"" and of course there were many with tears, my own included. Love, love when kids get so wrapped up in the emotions of a book. I still miss those wonderful read alouds since I retired. Lovely post!

  8. Read aloud is one of the most powerful things we can do in our classrooms. It is the time where we can show our pure love of books to our students. If we choose the right books and read them with all our emotions, the children will have comments like you have shared.

  9. Love how you wove those comments into a poem. They must have warmed your teacher's heart! They certainly made me smile. You can congratulate yourself that you are doing something very well! Read aloud is one of my favorite parts of the day and now I'm dying to know what you were reading aloud!

  12. THAT'S how a book should be read. When you can draw them in and make them care about words. Yea you!

  16. Love it! When a kid has been wiggly all through the read-aloud and then makes a comment like that, I realize that the book really did touch him or her.
