Interactive Read Aloud for Earth Day & a Freebie!



Friends~Earth Day is coming up on April 22 so I wanted to get my kiddos thinking about how we can beautify & take care of our planet.   Well, today we did just that by reading City Green by DyAnne DiSalco-Ryan.  It is a wonderful book that brings diversity and visualization together with a garden.  It is a perfect book to tie into your Earth day activities.
 

 I also spent yesterday afternoon with my team in a training for Interactive Read Alouds with Accountable Talk.  I am excited to begin organizing my literature with Post Its to keep me on track when I am reading.  I love the idea of the Read Aloud because it encourages the reader to be "transparent" with their thinking.

Here is a quick Preview of how I print directly to my Post It.  This allows me to place them in my books and have them in place year after year. 
Below you can see how I add the Post Its to the template before I print. 


 I then place the questions on the copier and print.  It is that easy! 


Pull off the Post Its and add to the corresponding pages of the book.
