A story is a way to say something that can’t be said any other way, and it takes every word in the story to say what the meaning is. You tell a story because a statement would be inadequate.
Why do our teachers read aloud to students?
• To introduce your children to great literature that is beyond their personal reading ability.
• To help your children develop a life-long love of reading.
• To expand your children’s vocabulary.
• To build listening skills, including the ability to visualize the meaning of spoken words.
• To develop oral reading skills.
