PDF (Acrobat) Document File
Be sure that you have an application to open this file type before downloading and/or purchasing.
This product contains a 3 day shared reading menu to enhance content vocabulary, engage readers in thoughtful questioning and discussion, strengthen retelling, and develop concepts about print through poetry. It is the perfect menu leading up to Thanksgiving. Pair this no prep file with Melissa Sweet's text, "Balloons Over Broadway" to celebrate and learn more about the history of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the story of Puppeteer, Tony Sarg.
Recommendation for use: Display file on your SMARTBoard as you read aloud "Balloons over Broadway". With students facing you (and not the SMARTBoard) introduce content vocabulary (using cards provided) and engage with the text using the teacher provided prompts. I prefer to use a clicker to seamlessly move from one slide to the next. When you get to the Thanksgiving poem, interact with the text directly on the SMARTBoard. Teacher prompts are at the bottom right corner for your reference.
Important Note: Please make sure that you have access to the book "Balloons over Broadway" either in print or e-book. Thank you!
