Product Description
As I plan with teachers of a ll grade levels, one of the conversations we keep having is: How do we engage every child during a read aloud and hold them accountable for their thinking, while keeping it fun and exciting?

Enter: Interactive Read Aloud Signs!

These signs are designed to do exactly that: 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 four different sets of read aloud cards in this product, 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.

The Fiction Summary Elements set includes:
-Main Character
-Supporting Character
-Rising Action
-Resolution of the Conflict

The Character Analysis set includes:
-Character Action
-Character Thought
-Character Dialogue
-Words Other Characters Say About the Character
