The key to saving time and having the perfect interactive read aloud lesson

without the stress of searching for the perfect book

Introducing...

You thought lesson planning would be simple once you left college. You thought it would be less time consuming once you got a few years of teaching experience under your belt.

“Just reuse the lessons.” 

“The standards don’t change that often.” 

“Admin knows I can teach now, so I can just wing it as I go.” 

But as you’ve learned, it’s not always that simple, friend.

If only planning for one day of teaching didn’t take hours of searching the internet, chatting with co-workers, sifting through book after book, and constantly tweaking, you’d have some extra time on your hands and less worry about if you are actually moving readers forward.

Listen, I hear you...

You have tried just hopping on Pinterest and quickly searching for books and activities that will support your readers where they need it most.

You have talked to experienced teachers to get lesson ideas.

You have weathered the shift in reading instruction.

And still, you feel like you are drowning trying to find the perfect read aloud lesson to target a specific reading skill or strategy.

Just Imagine...

Research says...

“Reading aloud helps students learn how to use language to make sense of the world; it improves their information processing skills, vocabulary, and comprehension.” - University of Iowa Center for Teaching

After the last few years you have endured in the classroom, after all the changes we are having in literacy instruction, you need a solid place to land for quality read aloud lessons.

Your time is precious and I know you’d rather spend it relaxing in your
favorite comfy clothes on the couch or
spend it creating memories with your family and friends
instead of
pulling your hair out trying to find the perfect lesson to teach synthesizing or settling for something “that will just have to do”.

During my days in the kindergarten and first grade classroom, teaching reading was the most overwhelming part of my day early on. What a big thing to teach such little people! 

Was I doing it right?
Was I teaching them everything?
Did I hit the right teaching point?
Was it even working?

I would spend many Friday nights on the floor of my favorite bargain bookstore searching through children’s books to find the perfect book to help teach a reading strategy or skill. 

I have spent years reading books to both my classroom kids and my own kids at home. My teacher brain never turns off. I am constantly looking for a great read aloud to teach a reading skill or strategy that is also fun for the season, has a meaningful lesson, and most of all is enjoyable so that kids learn to LOVE reading! 

I have shared read aloud lessons with thousands of teachers and helped them save time and have targeted reading instruction through many enjoyable books!

Research says...

“Read alouds allow the teacher to model expert, fluent reading of the text. This liberates the students from having to do the work of decoding and allows them to focus on comprehension, acquisition of new vocabulary, phonemic awareness, etc." - Dr. Betsy Okello, 2021

“My students love listening to books, and I love the engaging comprehension that comes with this resource. Everything is so easy to follow and love how everything is included that you should need!”

-Meghan B., Kindergarten Teacher

Your Fellow Teachers Wanted to Know…

(Frequently Asked Questions)

The read aloud lessons are created with kindergarten through second grade in mind. The books have been thoughtfully chosen based on students’ listening levels and comprehension abilities. 

Yes! You can download a FREE sample lesson to give you an idea of what the lessons for one book look like. Click HERE to download the lessons!

Yes! As long as you are a paying member, you will retain access to the lessons. You can always download the lessons to store at any time! I also have them nicely organized inside The Read Aloud Library!

Great question! While the format will be very similar to the other lessons in my TpT shop, the books are different and there are many added elements. Also, new reading strategies and skills will be included in The Read Aloud Library that are not included on TpT, such as cause and effect, main idea, and others!

No physical books are included. If you don’t own the books for each month, check your school library and public library. Many books can also be found read aloud on YouTube as well if you can’t find one in one of your libraries.

Each set of 6 read aloud lessons will be instantly delivered to your online portal, The Read Aloud Library, on the 23rd of each month. For example, February read alouds will appear on January 23rd. 

No, each teacher will need their own membership to join. I do offer school discounts for groups of 5 or more who are making a purchase. You can reach out to us at [email protected] Thank you for supporting my small business.  

I can always share a list of books used in past lessons, but we work a month in advance so I cannot tell you all the books that will be used in the future. Inside The Read Aloud Library, as soon as we have books picked for the month, I list them so you can work ahead and grab books from your local library or school library! 

“My students and admin love these resources. Everything makes it so the lessons are engaging and appropriate for my kindergartners. The careful thought that went into these makes it so I have a trusted base for my reading block. My students cannot get enough of reading. Admin really likes how the lessons are connected to our standards too.”

-Mikki B., Kindergarten Teacher

I know you may be thinking, “But Amanda, I have lots of read aloud books that I have used for years and I love. Do I need more lessons?” 

And to that, my friend, I ask:

  • Do you have lessons already done for them?
  • Do you know exactly where to stop to drive home the teaching point?
  • Are they explicit in teaching reading skills and strategies?
  • Are the lessons rich in vocabulary to help build deeper reading comprehension? 

 

Building skilled readers is not something we can chance, friend. We can’t just “wing it” when it comes to having powerful interactive read aloud lessons. 

We owe it to our readers to be purposeful with the book selection and reading strategies and skills taught through them.
