My read alouds are Common Core aligned and follow the structure of the read alouds in the engageny Listening and Learning stories. This file contains a Common Core Read Aloud Lesson for "It's Pumpkin Time" by Zoe Hall. (Scholastic Books) This book is great for fall and learning about pumpkins!
The lesson includes pre-reading discussions to activate prior knowledge and to set purpose for reading, book introduction with discussion of author/illustrator. It includes a chart for comparing this book to her other books about life/season cycles that you probably have read earlier this year.
It also includes post-reading comprehension/discussion questions and a picture sequencing activity with printable pumpkin life cycle cards. And...it is Common Core aligned!
