Overview: This resource includes a "read aloud cloud" in which students record words or phrases while the teacher or specialist reads a text. You may edit the directions according to the type of text you are reading. This resource is intended for students with read-aloud accommodations and/or students who benefit from modeled reading.
How I used it: I created this resource for students in my SPED co-taught ELA class (grade 7). The "read aloud cloud" helped them to generate adjectives while I read aloud chapters from a historical fiction novel. They used the second page to create an image from their adjectives. The purpose of this activity was to 1) increase student comprehension and 2) prepare students for answering more concrete, text-based questions. It was a very helpful scaffold for my students.
