Reading Aloud:

Research tells us that reading aloud daily is a major factor in determining whether children will become lifelong readers.


TRACKS, a picture book by David Galef, is filled with action and colorful illustrations which makes it great for reading aloud .

As you read this book have your students or children predict where the train will go next.

A fun follow up activity for kids it to make a pair of eye glasses for Albert, the main character, out of construction paper and piper cleaners.
