LayneIn 1985 in the USA, the Report of the Commission on Reading identified reading aloud as: “the single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading...”“a practice that should continue throughout the grades...” Anderson et al 1985

Fourteen Fantastic Hints on Reading Aloudby Mem Fox, Queen of Read Aloud

•    Ensure your audience sits

close to you and close to each other.

•    Welcome everyone with

roving eye-contact on the first

couple of lines.

•    Entice, with the first line.


•    Remember to make the phrases into beautiful, lilting, up & down music.

•    Paint pictures by visualising the scenes and the emotions. 

•    Change vocally: high/low; loud/soft; fast/slow.

•    Speak the verbs (action words) with animation for lively reading .


•    Fall in love with the pause.

•    Don’t over-express: it’s

embarrassing—just hang

loose and have fun.

•    Don’t be ruled by rhyme


•    Make the last line v-e-r-y slow



•    Say goodbye to everyone with roving eye-contact on the last lines.

•    Never read anything aloud that you don’t like yourself.

•    Enjoy yourself and throw yourself into it to stop yourself from being boring!
