Interactive read aloud lessons for The Polar Express! Just print and teach! This read aloud is designed to cover three days. Interactive read aloud lessons allow us to teach a broad range of standards. You will find that the read aloud will cover several standards, but may focus more heavily on a specific one. This will be the standard assessed at the end of the week to provide evidence of mastery for that standard. Discussions include lots of think alouds, modeling, partner talk, and differentiation geared toward first grade students’ needs.

-interactive anchor chart
