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.

About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty-five 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 was a live guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show. I am highlighted in the seventh edition of Jim Trelease's million-copy bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital, and the Massachusetts State House in Boston.

    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!
