Ten COMPLETE print-and-go Interactive Read Aloud Lessons for teaching about CHARACTERS! This product works perfectly for teachers who are either new or experienced with teaching using an Interactive Read Aloud. I have included a concise primer that everyone can use for making every read aloud as effective as possible!
Each lesson includes a detailed script that goes along with a mentor text. I give you interactive stopping points for every read aloud. The stopping points use interactive elements such as turn and talk, sign language, and stop and jot.
If you are new to using Interactive Read Alouds to teach reading, don’t worry! I have included step-by-step directions for making every read aloud a success!
Every lesson includes a printable anchor chart that you can either print on full size chart paper or on 8”x11” paper.
CONVENIENT LESSON FORMAT
Every Interactive Read Aloud lesson can either be printed onto one piece of paper or onto sticky notes that you can place directly on the mentor text.
After each lesson, send students to read independently with an exit task bookmark aligned to the day’s lesson. There is a student workbook included that holds completed bookmarks along with a copy of the anchor chart that went with the lesson.
Everything in here is ready to go. All you need to do is print the lessons and gather the mentor texts. Everything is scripted, so your planning time is less than two minutes per lesson! You can even hand these lessons off to subs or reading aides!

THIS PRODUCT IS STREAMLINED TO WORK PERFECTLY WITH THESE TWO ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS:
The Reading Strategy Group Bundle offers corresponding reading strategy groups to nearly every Interactive Read Aloud lesson in this product. If you have a group of students who struggled to grasp one of the Interactive Read Alouds, then you can pull them together to work on it in a small group.
The Differentiated Daily Quick Reads are quick, 5-minute, reading warm ups that are perfectly aligned to the Interactive Read Aloud lessons in this product. Students independently read short passages and then answer questions focused on the specific strategies that you have taught. Review weeks are sprinkled throughout so that students continually go back and work on previously learned strategies.
These are amazing additions to your Interactive Read Aloud lessons, but certainly not required.
