Alternatives to Reading Aloud in Class V

I bring a group of students to the board so they’re facing the class. Then I get a narrator (I try to be sly and grab a student I know can read well) and however many character parts. Then I simply get them to use it more as a drama activity. They read the book as a team with each character reading his/her own lines.

This really can bring the text to life as they’ll naturally start to get physically involved in the story. Any subtleties in the text suddenly become more obvious to struggling students and …well …it’s fun for everyone.
