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

without the stress of searching for the perfect book

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...

Teachers say...

Hear from Nichole who has used my interactive read aloud lessons, “The lessons are organized in an easy to read and follow format and it gets kids thinking and keeps them engaged.”

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 relaxed 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 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!

(Frequently Asked Questions)

The read aloud lessons are created with kindergarten through second grade in mind. The books thoughtfully chosen are with K-2 listeners in mind. 

That depends on which plan you buy. The monthly plan wilil have lessons available for one month and then they will be replaced with the next month’s lessons. The yearly plan will allow you to grab the lessons at any time for the full 12 months. No worries, you can download them to keep at any time. 

Great question! The format will be very similar to the other lessons, 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 TeachersPayTeachers, such as cause and effect, main idea, and others!

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.
