Use this Interactive Read Aloud Placemat with your class (whole group or small group) to help them practice important comprehension strategies while you guide them through an interactive read aloud! At various points in the Read Aloud, of your choosing, students will stop and jot their ideas according to the prompts on the Placemat.
The Interactive Read Aloud Placemat includes prompts for prediction, inference, asking questions, visualization, synthesizing (theme), and one bonus comprehension activity.
In this attachment, the bonus comprehension activity is for figurative language. Additional Placemats will be added to support other comprehension activities.
