What educators are saying

I love that this resource takes some of the guess work and prep time out of making a high quality read aloud activity.
My students love these read alouds. They are very engaging and offer many opportunities for learning vocabulary and language.

    Reading aloud to our students is one of the best ways that we can improve their comprehension of language. This is especially true when working with ESL Reading Comprehension. Your students will be easily engaged as they listen and learn language skills through monthly diverse read-aloud sets.

    Each month, you'll receive 2 new read-aloud activities for grades K-2 and 3-6.

    Each set includes extended ESL worksheets that will cover all the domains: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. The ESL lesson included has step-by-step instructions for easy, fun learning. ESL students will have opportunities to practice vocabulary and grammar in context, which is the best way to learn.

    Another benefit is that this resource can easily be used as ESL Sub Plans? Unlocking Language through Read-Alouds is a resource that is easy to use with very little prep, but still benefits your students. The basic lesson is a  quick 30-minute activity but you can also use the extended activities for small group or whole-class instruction.

    Each read-aloud activities set includes:

    ✔ Preselected vocabulary, questions, and word skills that can be printed on sticky notes to highlight during the reading.

    ✔ Essential question to guide discussion

    ✔ Question stems to create active listeners

    ✔ QR code of the read aloud to use as a listening center

    ✔ 4 Conversation topics

    ✔ Phonics/grammar worksheet

    ✔ Close reading passage related to the read-aloud

    ✔ Differentiated writing prompts based on WIDA levels

    ✔ Writing extension based on the read-aloud.

    How will this bundle help you?
