Do you need fun and engaging winter themed read aloud lesson plans? This pack of interactive read aloud lesson plans comes with daily scripted read aloud plans for 3 weeks that go along with 3 winter themed books. These easy to prep December read aloud books and plans will be the PERFECT addition to your classroom this holiday season. 

These December read aloud lesson plans are interactive and focus on important learning standards. Each week there will be one main standard to be focused on but other standards will also be tied in just as a brief introduction of that skill or a review. These lessons were designed for a 1st grade classroom but could easily be used with kindergarten and 2nd grade as well.

Included with this pack of winter themed read aloud lessons: 

  • 3 weeks of daily lessons.
  • “When we talk we….” rules poster
  • I Can label for I can statement.
  • Weekly vocabulary words and ideas for hand gestures to use with them.
  • Ideas for your anchor charts
  • Vocabulary cards
  • I can and skill poster for your anchor chart
  • Writing response slips with the day they are to be used listed on them.
  • Essential question for each story
  • Questions to ask while reading to get students involved.
  • A clickable link to purchase the book (most can be found used for less than $5).
  • Each part of the lesson has the standard being covered listed beside it.
  • Multiple standards covered in one week.
  • Culminating activities for the end of each week.

This interactive read aloud pack uses 3 different books for 3 weeks of lessons for the months of December. There are only 3 in this month because of winter break. Each Friday the class will complete a cute craft to show their mastery of the skill. 

These December read aloud lesson plans can be used as a whole group reading lesson where students can come to the carpet. Students will participate by listening, thinking, talking with a partner, writing in their reading notebooks, sharing and more. 

December Read Aloud Books:

✅Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson

✅What If You Had Animal Hair by Sandra Markle

✅Olive the Other Reindeer by Vivian Walsh

❤️Using an Interactive read aloud is a great way to teach important reading skills while your students stay focused and involved. When teaching with this method, your students will be listening, thinking, talking with a partner, writing, sharing and so much more. 

These winter themed read aloud daily lessons will focus on one standard but also spiral review in other standards. Each week ends with a culminating activity to tie together the week's lesson.
