Reading aloud regularly exposes students to new and familiar vocabulary and texts. Listening to and observing fluent readers provides a helpful model for learners to understand how to engage with texts and develop their own reading abilities.
Watch how a first grade teacher uses a read-aloud to dive deeper into a text. By pausing during the reading to verbalize her thoughts, she models questioning, inferencing, and using context cues. With these supportive prompts, students are able to practice these strategies to develop their Narrative Skills and connect elements of the text with their Background Knowledge.
Videos are chosen as examples of strategies in action. These choices are not endorsements of the products or evidence of use of research to develop the feature.
Learn how MeeGenius allows users to not only listen to narrated books but also follow along by highlighting the words as they are being read. Having the audio pronunciation simultaneously with a visual highlight cue helps early readers develop Decoding, Phonological Awareness, Morphological Awareness, and Sight Recognition.
