Reading aloud to your students is one of the biggest gifts you can give to your class as a teacher. Read-alouds provide an opportunity for your class to relax, unwind, and listen as they discover the joy in hearing a story. They also help boost vocabulary and increase fluency. These 17 titles are perfectly suited for read-alouds for students in grades 4–5. Use them to spark class discussions, encourage students to make predictions, and help young readers "think aloud" as you work your way through the story.
