We’ve all been there. The day’s lesson is embedded with the task of students reading out loud. You pause, take a deep breath, and begin working your teacher magic to get your students excited about the impending endeavor of reading in front of their peers. At this juncture, you either chuckle, cry, or start sweating, because you know numerous students that probably fit one or more of these hilarious, and sometimes frustrating, read-aloud personalities.

1. The “Funny Voices” Kid.

This student has a repertoire of voices that can entertain any class when reading aloud…

2. The “Always Lost” Kid. 

Not only is this student terrible at following along, his neighbors are equally as bad. 

3. The “Speak Up” Kid.

This student, despite frequent pleads, will not read louder than a whisper. 

4. The “Auctioneer.”

This student has two speeds when reading aloud: fast and faster. 

5. The “Can’t Understand You” Kid.

This student’s brain reads faster than his mouth can speak…

6. The “Mispronounces Every Word” Kid. 

Despite needing help with virtually every word, this student holds a special place in our hearts for their efforts…

7. The “Overzealous Reader.”

It doesn’t matter the day, this student is always first to volunteer to read out loud…

8. The “Never Present in Class to Read” Kid.

Remarkably, this student is never present in class on read aloud days…
