This bundle includes 2 Interactive Read Aloud lessons designed for first grade students. The lessons were created based on the book, Chrysanthemum, by Kevin Henkes, but can easily be adapted to suit other texts. Teacher think-aloud and guiding students to use metacognitive strategies are major components of these lessons.
Several student learning objectives are targeted. First grade students will be able to:
- make inferences about a character’s feelings based on information in the text.
- show understanding of vocabulary acquired from listening to the story.
- retell the story in their own words using information from the text.
- define words from the story by category and by one other attribute.
**Each lesson follows the gradual release of student responsibilities process and includes a writing extension!**
