Interactive Read-Alouds

Hello Friends~
Welcome back to the Primary Pack! It's Dianna here with you today from, Sassy, Savvy, Simple Teaching.
I'm here today to share with you a "GO-TO" resource that is an oldie but a goodie! A friend & co-worker of mined shared it with me last year & I highly recommend keeping this resource near your lesson plan book or using it to collect titles for your mini-lessons!.

Linda Hoyt: Interactive Read-Alouds
Click HERE to visit the home page & look around!

Of course you can buy the entire product suited for your grade, but the website also has some FREE items to help you with your lesson planning. Read on to see...

The read-aloud lessons are designed around popular children's classics common to classroom and school libraries.The read-aloud lessons are grouped into six standards-based strands: comprehension, story elements, vocabulary/literary language, literary elements and devices, genre, and writing traits. So this is a perfect resource when planning read-alouds for all your ELA lessons. The children's classics in Linda Hoyt's Interactive Read-Alouds are organized into two groups—Mentor Texts and Booklinks. A Mentor Text is an exemplary model of good literature and is the centerpiece of each lesson. A cover image of each Mentor Text opens the lesson and the lesson explicitly models how to teach a targeted strategy or literary element with this title. Booklinks are also familiar favorites that lend themselves to teaching a targeted standard. These are suggested as alternative titles that will help you extend the focus on a standard across many texts and multiple subjects. Many of the Mentor Texts and Booklinks are Caldecott and Newberry Medal winners.
