Product Description
Do you love reading aloud to your primary students? We do too! It is one of my 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 a graphic organizer and writing in response to text activity to incorporate writing standards. This pack also includes an art piece to compliment the read-aloud and bulletin board headings to display the work.
Our lesson plans will guide you through 3 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:
- A Detailed Lesson Plan with Photographs of Student Work and Teacher Anchor Charts
-Text Dependent Questions
- Story Map Graphic Organizer
-Phrases Graphic Organizer
-Stick and Stone's Feelings Graphic Organizer
-Writing page
-Craft Pattern
-Bulletin Board Title
