I am so excited to have finally combined some of my best-selling “Read Aloud Comprehension” materials & created a bundled product that is jam-packed with instructional strategies and engaging beginning literacy activities! Gail Gibbons is one of my favorite authors of informational text for children. Her books include factual information about all kinds of topics, and her text is at a “just right” level-she doesn't water down her content to ensure primary age readability, but instead uses content rich vocabulary that young children are capable of using and understanding as part of their oral language. The material is perfect for modeling and practicing comprehension strategies through read aloud so our primary age students are ready to understand what they read when they are confronted with more sophisticated text. Comprehension taught through read aloud should be a regular component of an effective literacy program, and the activities in this packet will provide you with a multitude of material as you design your instruction.
This bundle includes instructional material to go with the following books by Gail Gibbons. Each title will link you to the individual product for sale in my TPT store, where you can take a look at the thumbnails, descriptions, and preview material of each product:
This product includes 166 pages of content vocabulary, vocabulary building activities, main idea/detail practice, locating text evidence to answer questions, labeling illustrations, true/false based on text information, compare/contrast, & other strategies that give students practice using higher level thinking skills using authentic text.
Depending on the grade and skill level of your students, many of the activities are meant to be used during guided instruction. As your students acquire reading skills they may be able to do some of the work independently at literacy centers. Please take time to read the previews and look at the materials to be sure you are choosing instructional material that best fits the needs of your students. I have confidence that you and your students will enjoy learning as you read the Gail Gibbons informational text and begin to do some of the activities in these products.
Thanks so much for your interest in this product. You may be interested in the many other products for K-5th grade that I have in a variety of subject areas at my store at the following link:
