Reading to students Beginning readers need to be able to hear people reading while looking at the words (and sometimes, pictures) that tell the story. If their imaginations can be engaged, they will create a world from the sounds of words being read from printed paper (though digital is acceptable).  The adult reader should use their fingers to point and slide along the words while the words are read out loud. Our first obligation as reading teachers is to try to get the new-reader to want to experience the thrill of their own imaginations coming to life; in short, to want to read.
Students reading to parents Students need to be given time to practice reading, so when I taught fifth grade and sixth grade reading, I used a program I call HRAP, or the Home Read Aloud Program. The following links will bring you to a summary of the technique: HRAP Summary page 1 HRAP Summary page 2 HRAP Summary page 3
