This interactive read aloud unit is a great addition to your Reading Workshop! Number the Stars is a beautiful novel that is filled with strong themes and even stronger characters. This is the perfect read aloud to use to introduce your upper elementary students to Historical Fiction and World War Two.

What is Included?

· Reading Response Pages to extend student thinking

· At least three interactive read aloud prompt for each chapter. (Prompts include structures such as: Turn and Talk, Stop and Jot, Think Aloud, Setting a Purpose for Reading, etc.)

· Links to videos to extend student learning

· Ideas for activities for before, during and after reading.

· Interactive Word Wall

· Stop & Jot and Stop & Sketch pages

· Social Issues Extension: Students complete an inquiry into prejudice and refugees.

These lessons work fabulously with a Reading Workshop framework or simply as a way to help students delve into a beautiful book that teaches an important lesson about friendship and bravery.

Please note that this product DOES NOT include the book. However, Number the Stars can be found at most local libraries and on Amazon.
