Interactive Read Alouds: "Mae Among the Stars"

Interactive read alouds are my absolute favorite time in the classroom.  An interactive read aloud is a purposeful and meaningful read aloud of a book.

When you do an interactive read aloud in your classroom: students are exposed to complex texts, students are developing high-level thinking, students are deepening their comprehension, students are expanding their vocabulary, and students are developing a love of books and becoming life-long readers.

An interactive read aloud also allows the teacher to model fluency and comprehension.

I like to choose my read alouds for their theme.  One of the newest books in my classroom library is Mae Among the Stars by Roda Ahmed.  This is a great read when talking about perseverance.  Last week I created an interactive read aloud resource for this book.  This includes a full lesson plan for the interactive read aloud as well as writing prompts and pages.  Click on the image below to check it out!
