Read Aloud Magic

I'm between book club novels right now... So, what's a teacher to do? I know my students are reading and thankfully, my students are AVID readers this year. But after our shared connections & conversations during Rules, I wanted a way for my classes to connect through a novel without putting together an entire book club. So, I'm going back to basics with a magical read aloud. 

My book choice? 
Of course, I had to choose one my favorite books of the year - Crenshaw! My students and I had been counting down to the release and since it has an insane wait-list from the book raffle, I think they'll be super excited.

How am I going to make this a magical experience?

Today, I set the mood for Crenshaw's arrival. I put up my purple Christmas lights and plan on getting a black light before our reading on Thursday. Students all day today noticed and inquired about the purple lights. I told them they were from a special friend. 




I think one of the most magical thing for me, is knowing that I'm setting aside time to just read to my students. Don't get me wrong, I love Reader's Workshop and my book clubs but I'm so excited to share the pure joy and simplicity of reading. Sometimes, we just need to focus on the magic of the words! 

How do you conjure up reading magic?

I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
