WRAD14 Week 2 Blogging Challenge
I'm joining Matthew Winner and others in the World Read Aloud Day Blogging Challenge. It is not too late to join us! And certainly join in Lit World's World Read Aloud Day celebration on March 5th!
Week 2: February 17 - 23
Adult & Child
Answering the following questions with a child. The child can be a student or your own. Age does not matter. Make sure to exchange and enjoy answers with one another before sharing them with us.
I had a lot of fun answering these questions with some of my Digital Bookworm members! They came in during lunch and shared their thoughts.
1. I think everyone in the world should read…
Me: Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume. Maybe because I taught 4th grade for so long, and this was the book I always started the year with. The students always wanted to read more about Fudge & Peter!
Reagan: Percy Jackson books (she has read ALL of them MULTIPLE times! :))
2. If I could listen to anyone in the world read aloud to me it would be…
Me: my grandmother because she loved to share stories. When she would read a book, she couldn't wait to share parts of it with other readers.
Alyssa: the author who wrote the book because then you hear his/her voice reading his/her words too.
3. When I read aloud, my favorite character to impersonate is…
Me: a character from the south. I loved reading the voice of Dovey in Dovey Coe by Frances O'Roark Dowell. What an opening paragraph... "My name is Dovey Coe and I reckon it don't matter whether you like me or not.... I hated Parnell Caraway as much as the next person, but I didn't kill him."
Kayla: Gil from The Gollywhopper Games because he is so funny.
4. The genre or author that takes up the most room on my bookshelf (or e-reader) is…
Me: realistic fiction. I like finding characters to identify with. I am branching out though, so who knows in the future!
Sierra: Suzanne Collins- her books have a lot of action, and there is always something happening!
5. My favorite part about reading aloud or being read to is...
Me: getting so involved in the story that no one wants to stop reading. I love when my students beg me not to stop, just one more chapter!
Jeffrey: When someone reads aloud to me it makes understanding the book and story easier because I don't have to figure out the hard words.
I loved sharing these questions with my Digital Bookworms club! They had some really great answers!
