Using the McGhee Model for Interactive Read Aloud, I created 3 Interactive read aloud session using the Big Pumpkin By Erica Silverman. Students have really enjoyed the interactive read alouds and the follow-up activities. Questions used are categorized based on the revised Bloom's Taxonomy.
1. First Reading: Focus on vocabulary and understanding questions.
2. Second Reading: Student friendly vocabulary AND delving deeper into the higher leveled questions.
3. Third Reading: Picture read while student retells the story, followed by culminating activities.
Included: Lesson Plan (three 15 - 20 minutes), Retelling Flow Map in color and black and white, Character retelling cards to act out.
