Chester Lesson Plans:  Read Aloud

Chester by Melanie Watts is laugh-out-loud funny.  My class always got a kick out it and it is a great mentor text when you want to talk about a writer’s voice.  We use this book as part of our reading comprehension (Engaging Readers) lesson plans.

Just look at this book!

Chester Lesson Plans:  Video

Usually, by the 5th day of the book, it is nice to have someone else’s voice reading the story.  This is my favorite go-to YouTube channel for this purpose.  Remember, we want to teach reading comprehension with books… turning pages… pausing and contemplating illustrations and the words the author uses.   Videos are the cherry on top (and a little whipped cream)!  They are another important model of fluency.
