Download our Scope and Sequence to see we have aligned each of our K-1 read-aloud lessons with the CCSS standards.

This read-aloud bundle is unique in that it holds on to the tradition of reading-aloud for pleasure, but also helps you meet core standards at the same time. We have included rigorous text dependent questions where students use evidence from the text to deepen their understanding for 5 different stories. We have also included a different graphic organizer and specific writing in response to text activity to incorporate writing standards for each read-aloud. This pack also includes an unique art piece to compliment the read-aloud and bulletin board headings to display the work.
Our lesson plans will guide you through 3 days of close reading for each book. Each day you will read the book for a different purpose and students will complete a different activity. These activities will last more than 3 weeks. They are perfect for October!

This pack includes:
- A Detailed Lesson Plan with Photographs of Student Work
-Teacher Anchor Charts
-Text Dependent Questions for Each Book
- Graphic Organizers
-Writing in Response to Text for Each Book
-Craft Patterns
-Bulletin Board Titles
