This is a read aloud plan for the book Weslandia.
What does that mean?
In my classroom, I use a balanced literacy approach where I teach reading skills through my modeled thinking (or think alouds) as I read the text. The students try out the skill in another section of the book using either a Turn and Talk or Write/Pair/Share method.
I incorporated elements of interactive notebooks within the pack if you would like to have evidence of student learning.
