There has been a vast amount of research dedicated to the positive benefits of reading aloud to students. However, lacking in the current research is the effect of repeated read-alouds on student comprehension. This action research attempts to answer the question “How does the level of reading comprehension change with repeated read-alouds?” This research focused on three 3 rd grade students in a suburban school. Methodology included reading picture books multiple times and analyzing student’s oral and written responses. Data analysis indicates that as a student’s familiarity with the story increased, so does their level of understanding. This implies that an effective method for increasing student’s comprehension is to expose students to repeated readings.
