That's probably the thing I hate most about school. I don't get why we have to read out loud it's just embarrassing. I'm not a fantastic reader so when I read out loud it's pretty much a train wreck. I love to read but in my head it sounds so much better and smoother. Well that's probably because there's not 30 kids waiting for me to mess up. The whole point of reading out loud to me is I think just to embarrass kids in front of their friends and classmates. Or maybe the teacher is just to lazy to read it which isn't fare to the students if they have trouble reading out loud.
I have had so much trouble over the years reading out loud that I sink down in my chair and wait for them to choose someone else. i have a reading disability so that doesn't really help at all. I guess we just have to suck it up and deal with it.
