If you’re looking for an engaging, efficient way to teach perspective through authentic literature, this is it! This print-and-go set of 3 mini lessons will help you effectively target perspective with your students! Great for both whole group and small group instruction, these interactive read alouds give every student in your class an experience with high-quality, grade-level appropriate literature, regardless of reading level! Even better, when there are student practice pages that apply to a lesson, a digital version of each one is provided! These digital files are compatible with Google Slides, Google Classroom, and PowerPoint.
The 3 texts featured in this lesson set are:
XO, Exoplanet by Deborah Underwood
Wagons Ho!: Then & Now on the Oregon Trail by George Hallowell
Tropical Rainforests by Peter Benoit
Each mini lesson in this set includes a detailed lesson plan for teachers, vocabulary words from the text, comprehension questions, and exit tickets! You will also find anchor charts, student activity pages, answer keys, suggestions for teaching modeling and think-alouds, and more!
Using interactive read alouds is one of the best ways that a teacher can foster a classroom community of collaboration and harness the power of modeling. You get the opportunity to demonstrate what a great reader looks and sounds like, while giving the same power to your students, no matter their reading level. All books in this lesson set were thoughtfully chosen as excellent texts for teaching perspective.
These lesson plans, while short and sweet, are detailed enough to leave for a substitute or give to a teaching aide!
