Do you love reading aloud to your primary students? We do too! It is one of our favorite times of the day. This read-aloud pack is unique in that it holds on to the tradition of reading aloud for pleasure, but also helps you meet core standards at the same time. We have included rigorous text dependent questions where students use evidence from the text to deepen their understanding of the story. We have also included graphic organizers and a writing in response to text activity to incorporate writing standards. This pack also includes an art piece to compliment the read-aloud.
Our lesson plans will guide you through 3-4 DAYS of close reading. Each day you will read the book for a different purpose and students will complete a different activity.
This pack includes:
-Detailed Lesson Plan with Examples
-Text Dependent Questions
-Key Ideas and Details Graphic Organizer
-Point of View Graphic Organizer
-Memoirs Writing Paper
To teach these lessons you will need:
Memoirs of a Hamster by Devin Scillian
Our buyers said:
"I loved the questions and graphic organizers. I guess I expected a bit more detailed craftivity than what was included though."
"The students loved writing their own memoirs. Some of the girls liked the idea of having a lock put on theirs. It was a fun activity!"
This read-aloud is included in our April Read-Aloud Activities Bundle. For one month of read-alouds that meet the Core Standards, you can purchase the bundle at a discounted price!
