“Llama Llama Red Pajama” was the selection for World Read Aloud Day at Northeast Elementary School. Kindergarten and pre-K classes gathered together throughout the day on Feb. 1 as teachers read the book aloud.

Kindergarten teacher Maria Lievano said that the book was chosen off of the World Read Aloud Day’s suggested list because it supports early literacy skills such as rhyming and making predictions. It also sparked discussions between students and their teachers about the difference between fiction and non-fiction texts. 

Children participated in turn and talk discussions about different vocabulary words in the book, along with various writing and craft activities. Ms. Lievano said the because there are many books in the “Llama Llama” series, hopefully students would be inspired to follow the adventures of the character and keep reading.
