Using Read Alouds to Create Joyful and Thoughtful Readers

In this session we will explore interactive read alouds and how to use them to inspire readers to reflect, learn, and engage with books. Participants will discuss practices for implementing interactive read alouds, and plan their own read aloud to use right away.  And, of course, we’ll read to you!

Bring a favorite picture book to share.
