This file contains a 8 page Common Core Read Aloud Lesson for "The Kissing Hand" by Audrey Penn. (Available from Scholastic Book Club) This book is great for Back to School! The lesson gets kids started right away in the structure of a Common Core interactive read aloud.
The lesson includes prereading vocabulary and book introduction which includes a "Think, Pair, Share", to activate prior knowledge. It also includes during reading and postreading comprehension/discussion questions, a cut and glue story sequencing activity, a little "craft" to take home ...and it is Common Core aligned!
It includes a plan for a comparison to A Teacher for Bear (which is a great first day of school read and also available from Scholastic Book Club with a Read Aloud Lesson here in my store, too!)
