You wish you could do a read aloud every day.

Only Problem is...when do you have the time?

I hear ya! Believe me, I've been there too!

There are 3 main obstacles that are keeping you from implementing interactive read alouds
in your daily routine.


You want to make read alouds a priority, but you don’t know where to fit it in your schedule.  Your day is already jam packed with all the things that you don’t know how to fit it all in.


You want to use picture books to teach valuable lessons but you don’t know what questions to ask or what follow-up activities you should do.


You don’t know which books are the best ones to use (and you don’t have the time to find them!).

It feels like there are so many things standing in your way which is causing you to...

No matter how hard you try, you’re still struggling to come up with the time to read aloud to your students.

Sound familiar?

    How would it feel to...


    I'm Sara

    If you’re new to me…I’m a former elementary school teacher turned educational consultant and curriculum designer. I started my TpT journey back in 2011 as a side hustle.

    Before leaving the classroom to pursue helping educators full time, I spent 10 years perfecting my read aloud instruction. At first, I thought I could just grab any book to use as an interactive read aloud. #epicfail It was through a lot of trial ands lots and lots of error that I developed a read aloud routine that worked for me and my students.

    Once I finally had a good set of routines and procedures in place, I started to notice a change in even my most reluctant readers. They were beginning to LOVE READ ALOUDS! Every day I was able to incorporate read alouds across the curriculum.

    Because I’ve spent years nailing down the essential ingredients to creating a successful interactive read aloud. i pride myself in being able to deliver resources and trainings to teachers to truly make your life easier, and I know I can deliver that to you today!

    Sara 🙂
