Activity Guides

To further enhance the value of our Readalongs, we've developed these activity guides with a focus on literacy, reading and media standards to use with children as an aid in encouraging effective reading and language arts skills.

Before using the readalong with a child or group of children, the adult should:
a) read the book while listening to the CD
b) read this guide, adding to or deleting any of the suggested activities according to the needs of the child or group

We suggest the following sequence when ready to share with the class:
a) Hold up and introduce the book (see "Introducing the Story")
b) Pass out the books
c) Explain to the children that they are to read silently along with the narrator
d) Play the CD (see notes below)
e) Proceed with activities

Playing the CD:
The recording has two sound tracks: one with a page turn signal (the actual sound of a page being turned), the other without. Both are marked on the CD. The page turn signal is introduced by the narrator after the title is read. This track should be used with young readers who require help in maintaining their reading pace. The second track is not signaled and is suitable for use with more advanced readers.
