This Week’s Read Aloud

Here is my latest find from a trip to the library:

How to Teach a Slug to Read by Susan Pearson

I found myself chuckling with each turn of the page. 

Here’s why:

  • Illustrations –The personified slug images are hilarious–a must see to appreciate.  
  • Familiar–the story refers to some very familiar book titles we all remember reading–but of course in Slug style– example: The Poky Little Slug.
  • Great Teachable Moments–If you teach the early grades, this would be a great beginning-of-the-year read aloud to excite your students about learning.  The story really does go through the steps of learning to readAND  It’s also a great read for teaching point of view–after all, you’re teaching a slug to read here.  How’s that for a different perspective?

Visit your local library to find your next treasure.–Happy Reading!
