This is a set of Read Aloud and Writing Response lesson plans that address Literature Common Core Anchor Standards 1 and 3. These lessons can be adapted to Grades 3 and 4. These lessons have also been used with Grade 4 Special Education students, with some pacing and presentation adaptations. I used only the chapters in Sandra Cisneros's beautifully written House on Mango Street that I thought were accessible and appropriate to third and fourth graders I work with. These lessons also serve as a template for Close Reading and Interactive Read Aloud lessons for other chapter books. You can use it to design CCSS-based lessons that are interactive and dig deeper into the text. Contact me at APJAS for more Interactive Read Aloud lessons.
