20 Short Read Alouds

Each read aloud 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! The read alouds cover 5 sub-genres of fantasy: folktales, fairy tales, fables, myths, and modern fantasy. View the preview (above) to see a list of individual titles.

Each read aloud sheet contains the following:

  • Book Information: title, author, reading level, duration
  • 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 Questions
  • Modeling/Think Aloud
  • "After Reading" Discussion Questions
  • Mini Lesson Ideas: A short list of mini lessons that would pair well with the read aloud. The bolded mini lesson can be found in the corresponding Fantasy Mini Lessons.

1 Extended Read Aloud
