High-quality literature read aloud offers children access to important ideas, rich vocabulary, and the opportunity to actively problem solve and discuss emerging understandings with peers and their teacher. Teacher-conducted read-alouds can be important sources of world knowledge for children. In this text, three read aloud units of study designed for use with first grade children are featured. For each text there are comprehension engagements and text-dependent questions that are aligned to the CCSS.
This is a professional text for primary grade educators.
