This read-aloud pack on 'Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving' 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.
Our lesson plans will guide you through 3-5 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:
-Detailed Lesson Plan with Examples
-Text Dependent Questions
-Story Events Graphic Organizer
-Author vs. Illustrator Graphic Organizer
-Compare/Contrast Graphic Organizer
-Opinion Writing Page
-Craftivity Pattern and Instructions
