This read-aloud pack on 'The Giving Tree' is unique in that it holds on to the tradition of reading aloud for pleasure, but also focuses on meeting core standards and aiding in comprehension 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 graphic organizers and response-to-text activities to incorporate writing standards. This pack also includes an art piece or craftivity to compliment the read-aloud.
