Or maybe it's a spelling question. I still plead for your help.

In this sentence

Quote:
I would tempt students with enticing displays and read-alouds.
Is it

A. read-alouds
B. readalouds
C. read alouds

Thanks for your help!

i would reword the sentence so that i don't have a plural, but if you have to leave it: read-alouds.

You could also use the word mentor texts.

I was going to go with read-alouds, but I took tia's advice and reworked the sentence. I had already used mentor texts in the previous sentence, so I didn't want to repeat myself. Final sentence:

Quote:
I would tempt students with enticing displays and read aloud intriguing books.
