I've been busy creating lots of preschool curriculum like this Dinosaur Unit over on Teachers Pay Teachers. (You can find it here) I am working on entire years worth of preschool curriculum for my almost 2 year old son. I want to be prepared for when he turns 3 and we begin a little preschool at home.
I want to begin creating a new type of document to keep it fun for me. I want to create packets to go along with teacher read alouds. As a teacher I loved when I read a book aloud each day. It was my favorite part of the day and we read everything from Harry Potter, Fablehaven, The Witches, Where the Red Fern Grows, and More. But, I never did work to go along with these books. We simply read the book for 20 minutes each day and moved on. Looking back now, that was a mistake, and I wish that I had done more to solidify my students comprehension on the book and the topics being discussed.
So, the advice I am seeking is:
When you read aloud to your students, what activities do you like to do to go along with your book?
So far I've thought of a focus on:
Comprehension questions and projects
What else would you like to see?
I so appreciate your advice! If you can leave me a comment saying what you're looking for, and your email I will send you ANY document from my teachers pay teachers store for free!
