Looking for a list of favorite 4th grade read aloud books?
I love reading, and honestly, our read aloud is my favorite part of the day. I love to read to my students and see the wonder on their faces as the story unfolds before them. There is just something magical that takes place during this time, and I don’t know what I would do without it. Somehow during a read aloud all the behaviors go away, the worries of the world disappear, and we just read. Magic right?
I have a few characteristics that I look for in a 4th grade read aloud.
- Engagement-they have to hook my students from the very beginning
- Author-I love to stick to authors that have written multiple books, because I want students to want to read more by them when we are done, and that doesn’t work if there aren’t more.
- A series-series are wonderful for the same reason mentioned above. Sometimes we might read several books in a series, but often I will just read the first one and then make sure that the rest are readily available for students to read themselves.
- Relatable-I want students to have access to the characters and be able to connect in one way or another.
