Interactive read alouds

Interactive read alouds

  • Aim for 20-30 minutes daily.

  • Use quality informational and narrative texts. (Integrate your subject areas and promote intertextual connections!)

  • Deliberately plan which skills and strategies you will focus on with each text.

  • Incorporate think-alouds into your instruction.

  • Build in a day for rereading a text and incorporating skill extension (writing-based retelling, compare-contrast texts…).

Goal: engage students in actively using specific reading strategies while teacher guides and coaches.

    • Created by same author or illustrator (create connections)

  • Choose Vocabulary that is:
