Read Aloud Lesson Plan: Each Kindness


Each Kindness







    This read aloud lesson focuses on the reading comprehension strategy of inferring for the book Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodsen. This great book teaches us to explore the idea of kindness and lost opportunities. This lesson uses the gradual release model and offers stopping points throughout the story. There is also an anchor chart for inferring. This book discusses kindness, bullying and lost opportunities.

     I love the message "Each kindness makes the world a little better."  This book is about a young girl named Maya who is new to the school.  Maya is obviously poor.  She smiles at Chloe, the narrator, who turns away.  Throughout the book, Maya makes overtures to no avail.  One day, the teacher gives a lesson on kindness and Chloe realizes what's she's done.  However, she can't 
make it up to Maya as she's moved away.
     
     My students did not like this ending.  However, I think it's great. Sometimes, you can't just make it up.  There are lost opportunities and regrets in life.
   
     It's $1 on TeachersPayTeachers.

FREE MISC. LESSON - “Test Prep: Practice Filling in Those Bubbles!”

by Lisa Goodell
Kindergarten - 2nd Grade

This document will help teach students to only mark one answer choice per item, and how to correctly bubble in the circle (to not go outside the lines and to fill in the whole circle). The practice test can be taken alone or be read aloud. 

The test questions are not hard and are not supposed to mimic the exact layout or wording of your state’s test. There are two pages of English Language Arts and two pages of Math. Each item has 3 answer choices. 

I created this for use with the students in my special education class who do not typically take tests where they have to bubble in their answers. As a result, I marked K-2 for grade levels, but the questions are more at the kinder level.

Page 2: Introductory Page and Answer Key 
Page 3: Test Prep Handout
Page 4-7 Practice Test #1
Page 8 Thanks and Credits

Have a great day and thanks for looking!

Read Aloud Lesson Plan: The Wretched Stone

The Wretched Stone







This is a great book for the reading comprehension strategy of inferring. It's another amazing book by Chris Van Allsburg. If you haven't read it, it's about a ship and it's crew.  The crew is a happy one, reading and playing instruments. Then it is out sailing and stops at an island.  It is s strange place with no animals or insects.  While there, they find a stone and bring it on the ship. This tone is bad news and changes the crew.  Stop reading now if you don't want the book spoiled.  OK so the men are now gathered around this stone and won't work or read or do anything.  The captain tries to talk to them to no avail.  After a time, the men turn into monkeys!  There is a storm and the stone goes dark.  The men return to normal.  


This book is a warning against the perils of too much television.  It never states that directly and there is a lot of inferring needed for this book.  If you're looking for an anchor chart for inferring and an easy lesson plan, here you go.  I created a read aloud lesson plan on my TPT store.  This great book teaches us to explore the evils of television with masterful storytelling. This lesson uses the gradual release model and offers stopping points throughout the story. There is also an anchor chart for inferring. My read aloud lesson plan is $1.

There's great vocabulary in this book, too.  Appropriate for 2nd-5th grades. Enjoy!
