This is an Interactive Read Aloud lesson for the text "Penguins Closeup." The zip file includes the week layout plans as seen on the preview. Then it has a daily breakdown of what you do along with the resources needed to complete the lesson. Also included in the zip file is a reference explaining what an Interactive Read Aloud is and giving you links of videos to view Interactive Read Alouds being implemented in a classroom. This resource has everything you need to teach this Interactive Read Aloud with very little prep or planning on your part.
**I use this resource along with "Interactive Read Aloud: Tacky the Penguin" to make a 2 week Penguin Unit using a Fiction and Nonfiction text that tie together and focuses on the same skills. I then teach my 2 week Polar Bear Interactive Read Aloud and then spend a week comparing/contrasting Penguins and Polar Bears. I have all of these units bundled together at a discounted rate if interested in doing all 4 units.
