Welcome to the first episode of the Read-Aloud Revival Podcast!
Today I’m sharing my conversation with Andrew Pudewa from the Institute for Excellence in Writing.
We talk about:
- why reading aloud to kids who are old enough to read to themselves is so critically important
- how you aren’t making a mistake in reading to your struggling reader
- how to engage your kids in great conversations about books
