This product gives you the materials to set up "Read Aloud Binders" for your students. You will need to purchase the binders along with tabs (5) for each. I also bought page protectors for my heading pages. Each week we do a new read aloud of a complex text and we use these binders to store all of our information. I create a "read aloud guide" for each book that we do. Look for those in my store! Each week we focus in an in-depth way on character traits, author's message, vocabulary, summary writing, connecting, etc. I have been amazed at how much this has impacted my reader's and writer's workshop. My students are getting it and it shows in their reading and writing!
