    At what age level/reading level do students stop reading out loud?

    Last year I had readers of every level and it was never an issue. They all came in reading (or at least attempting) to read in silence. (I was 4th last year, 3rd this year.)

    This year the room always seems so noisy during independent reading. But when I look around it's not because the kids are off task, it's because a lot of them are reading out loud (some louder than others.)

    Should I discourage this? Should I discourage it for certain students only? (By reading level/learning styles?)

    sometimes reader's read aloud. I don't think you should discourage it, esp if they aren't bothering one another.

    My low readers do this in 5th. I want them reading, so I would never discourage it.
    I actually fought to get read to self on a student's IEP last year.

    I made whisper phones out of PVC pipes and elbows. The kids can hear themselves with just a whisper. I made a class set for under $20.
