Interactive Read Aloud Lesson Plan to Meet Standards

Do your students love interactive read aloud lesson plan time? We do too! It is one of our favorite times of the day. Interactive read aloud lesson plans and reading time when we come together as a class and escape into a fantasy world for a short period. Moreover, our students instantly become mesmerized by the stories.

  • We love watching their faces change as the plot thickens.
  • Seeing them wait as we slowly turn the page during intense moments.
  • We love listening to their laughter during the silly parts.
  • Most of all, we love modeling a love for reading.  It is a time for us to show students that reading is fun and magical.

Interactive Read Aloud Time Was Diminishing

Together, we discussed this problem and  decided to come up with a  way to solve the issue. We realized the Core Standards needed to be infused into our interactive read-aloud lessons, by reading with a purpose (not on the fly) and creating a plan ahead of time by developing mini-lessons. After brainstorming together, we’ve developed effective interactive read aloud strategies to meet core standards during our read-aloud lessons.

The 6 Read Aloud Strategies to Meet the Core Standards 

  • Extend the read-aloud over a few days to allow time to dig deeper and cover multiple standards
  • Read closely by revisiting the text with a different purpose each day. As an example, use small discussion strategies
  • Ask text dependent questions that require kids to refer to the text to provide evidence for their answers
  • Include a graphic organizer that reinforces the purpose
  • Incorporate a writing component
  • Integrate art

By incorporating these components we will be able to conquer all 8 Reading Literature Standards. This brainstorming session evolved into a year-long project…

    1. We love reading aloud each day – we are so blessed that our principal encourages our read alouds. What a fabulous post about how to overcome and still do things that you love. Great suggestions! Thank you for sharing! ToTheEdge

    2. Do you have any webinars or videos? It helps me so much to see it! I love read alouds and I haven't had the ammunition to justify it but I am going to use your bundle and if I could wrap it into a tiny bow that would be great!
