Smorgasbord Posts from Your Archives 2021 – #Potluck – #Reading Aloud & Reading – There’s a Big Difference – Jennie Fitzkee

Sally Cronin has shared one of my favorite blog posts – reading aloud. For me, the stories that the ‘father’ of reading aloud (Jim Trelease) told were absolutely gripping. The Boston school principal is just the story to make everyone pick up a book and read to a child. It makes a difference.

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

Since this series began in January 2018 there have been over 1100 Posts from Your Archives where bloggers have taken the opportunity to share posts to a new audience… mine.

The topics have ranged from travel, childhood, recipes, history, family and the most recent series was #PotLuck where I shared a random selection of different topics. This series is along the same lines… but is a ‘Lucky Dip’

In this series I will be sharing posts from the first six months of 2021 and on occasion I might dip into months either side to share gems. Submissions are now closed but there will be another series in January 2022.

This is the second post from Jennie Fitzkee and in this post Jennie shares her thoughts on the differences between reading and reading aloud…

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

    Jennie’s children are so lucky that she reads aloud to them thus bringing the stories to life 🙂 x

  2. Thanks for letting me share the post Jennie.. very special ♥

  3. Reading aloud is good for adults as well. On two separate evenings this week, I was on Zoom with a group of writers, and we read to each other for an hour–not to workshop, but just for the enjoyment of it.

  4. You have great taste in reading, Jennie!
