Teachers’ Read-Aloud Routine for Building Vocabulary and Comprehension Skills


Project ELITE worked with K–3 teachers at Del Valle Independent School District to implement a new way of reading books aloud to enhance students’ vocabulary and comprehension. This flip book presents a routine for teachers to use in their classrooms. For more information about this tool, contact Project Director Leticia Romero Grimaldo. There also is a prekindergarten version of the flip book.
