This short Read Aloud unit was created by Comprehension Corner for our classroom teachers to use for one week and then pass the basket along to another teacher at their grade level (traveling lessons). Everything you need is in the basket. Teachers in grades 3-5 used this unit focusing on main idea. It is a great way to stick to one focus and use these as mentor texts in other lessons. Teaching the main idea will increase comprehension in many areas of learning. This is a great resource that you can use with books from the library. Parents can do this too.
