I love reading aloud with my students. Through the use of strong mentor texts, we are able to examine rigorous vocabulary, character traits, author's message, theme, and so much more. I created this 5-day plan to follow so that each day you can dig a little deeper into the text with your students. Also included are all of the graphic organizers and response sheets that your students will need throughout the week. Read aloud is my most favorite time of the day. Through language workshop each week, all of my students get exposed to rich and meaningful text, regardless of their reading level or ability. Every student needs this to enhance their vocabulary and deepen comprehension. Here's to making it the best part of your day too!
