Product Description

This product includes 16 read alouds over quality texts geared toward third and fourth grades. These read alouds were designed to correspond with 20 mini lessons that make up my Historical Fiction Genre Unit (BUNDLE), but can be used without the lessons as well.

16 Read Alouds

Each Read Aloud Planning sheet contains more information than can be covered in a single read aloud. Simply highlight your instructional goals and the corresponding discussion questions--it's that easy! Each read aloud sheet contains the following:

  • Book Information: title, author, reading level.
  • Instructional Goals: These align naturally with the book's format, themes and content. Each discussion question is labeled with a corresponding common core standard.
  • Connections to Larger Units of Study: This section outlines how the focus of the read aloud connects to larger reading principles.
  • Book Introduction: A short introduction to the book.
  • "During Reading" Discussion: A few questions that can be asked during the reading to prompt student thinking. Each of these questions corresponds to one of the listed instructional goals and is labeled accordingly (see preview).
  • Modeling/Think Aloud: A suggestion for when the teacher can pause and model good reading behaviors.
  • "After Reading" Discussion: Discussion questions to be asked after the reading. Each of these questions corresponds to one of the listed instructional goals and is labeled accordingly (see preview).
  • Mini Lesson Ideas: A short list of mini lesson ideas that would pair well with the read aloud. The bolded mini lesson can be found in the corresponding Historical Fiction Mini Lesson Unit.
