Easy-to-prep signs to use during read alouds. Set the purpose for reading as explained in the teacher pages, and then students hold up their sign when they hear an example of that kind of figurative language! Easy way to engage students during read aloud! Signs can also be used to set a purpose during independent reading or reading stations/centers.
These signs are designed to hold students accountable, grow their listening comprehension and discussion skills, and keep read aloud fun while making it purposeful! Each student (or pair of students) receives a sign. This is their purpose for listening to the read aloud. As the teacher reads, students raise their signs when they find evidence of their purpose for listening, and share their thinking using the provided speaking stems.
There are eight read aloud signs, along with book suggestions and tips and ideas for using the read aloud signs. Each sign includes an image on the front to help students remember their purpose for reading. On the back are tips for students about the definition of their sign and a sentence frame to use when they are sharing their evidence from the read aloud.
