This informational text read-aloud bundle is unique in that it holds on to the tradition of reading aloud for pleasure and to learn information, but also focuses on meeting core standards and aiding in comprehension at the same time. We have included rigorous text dependent questions where students use evidence from the text to deepen their understanding. We have also included graphic organizers and response-to-text activities to incorporate writing standards for each text.

Our lesson plans will guide you through 3-5 days of close reading. Each day you will read the book for a different purpose and students will complete a different activity.

Download our Scope and Sequence to see we have aligned each of our 1-2 read-aloud lessons with the CCSS informational text standards.

This informational text bundle goes perfect with our October Literature Read-Alouds. Combine both bundles to meet ALL grades 1-2 Informational Text and Reading Literature Standards.

Do you love reading aloud to your primary students? We do too! It is one of our favorite times of the day. Make the most of your read aloud time with these amazing lesson plans!
