Want to save over 20% on our read-alouds? We have bundled the perfect set of titles for Back-To-School.
This monthlong read-aloud pack includes rigorous text dependent questions, differentiated graphic organizers, response-to-text writing activities, a craftivity, and detailed lesson plans for each title to help you meet several core standards while maintaining your tradition of reading aloud for pleasure. You will guide students to use evidence from the text to deepen their understanding of each story and respond in meaningful ways.
Each book's lesson plans will guide you through 3-5 daily close reading lessons. Each day students will interact with the book for a different purpose and then complete a corresponding activity. These activities will last more than 4 weeks and are perfect for September.
Each book's lesson plan includes:
- Detailed Lesson Plans with full-size Samples
- Text Dependent Questions and Answer Keys
- Differentiated Graphic Organizers
- Writing in Response to Text Activities
- Craftivity Instructions and Patterns
- Bulletin Board Titles
