Each week I focus on one complex text for my read aloud. I have an "Interactive Read Aloud" bulletin board that we add to all week. We focus on vocabulary, character traits, author's message, a reading strategy, along with a daily reading and writing learning target. This board has been so great for weekly consistency with my read alouds and the students love it! They can't wait on Monday morning to see the new cover of the picture book we will be diving into all week!
