Read-alouds are one of the best ways to introduce new concepts to students. By integrating stories in lessons, students are introduced to quality books. When students are exposed to engaging literature, it fosters a life-long love of reading.
There are even greater benefits when these engaging read-alouds are connected to a STEM activity! STEM promotes 21st century skills all while allowing students to connect their learning to science, technology, engineering, and mathematical principles. This creates learning opportunities that are rigorous while maintaining a high level of student engagement.
