Introduction

(5 minutes)
  • Call students together.
  • Read Llama Llama Time To Share by Anna Dewdney to the group. As the story is being read aloud, ask students to think about everything that happens when a teacher is reading a story aloud.
  • Have students brainstorm a list of everything they remember happening when the story was being read aloud. (Guide students to notice things like sharing the picture, talking loudly and clearly, asking questions/having discussions about what is happening in the text, etc.)

Beginning

  • Pre-read or introduce students to the read aloud text.

Intermediate

  • Provide a visual word bank of possible ideas for students to draw on when sharing what happens during a read-aloud.
