In this packet, you will find everything you need to complete an interactive read aloud of the book, The Relatives Came by Cynthia Rylant. Students will build background knowledge and vocabulary with before reading activities. Questioning and discussion prompts are included for use during the reading of the story. After reading, students will collaborate through discussion and participate in reading comprehension activities in order to respond to the text. Foster the love for a good book with these engaging, rigorous, and fun literacy activities!
*I typically teach this packet over 3 days for my 30 minute read aloud time. However, it can be done all at once depending on how much time you have!
