My first read aloud this September will be Stone Fox, by John Reynolds Gardiner. This is TC's recommendation. I have created these activity sheets to increase my students' listening skills and comprehension skills during the read aloud.
This product includes:
~Bulletin board set
~Picture vocabulary - great for English Language Learners or struggling students
~Comprehension questions (short response, not multiple choice) per chapter. There are 10 chapters in this book.
~A 2-page book report
~Essay (ELA format)
I love this book and the emotions it pulls out of my students each year. If you use TC (Teacher's College Reading & Writing Project), they require that we red Stone Fox as our first read aloud during Unit 1.
This can also be used for ELA test prep materials (short and extended response).
(I also sell lessons for Unit 1)
