These No Prep Print and Go Lesson Plans will save your teaching life! SERIOUSLY!!!
  • These book lessons are so easy to use.  Our scripted lessons take the guesswork out of your interactive read alouds planning!
  • Reading Comprehension skills are taught spirally all year.  This research-based approach helps make practice permanent and ensures students will revisit various reading comprehension skills in REAL WORLD literature.
  • Tier 2 Vocabulary is introduced and studied each week with lessons that stick!
  • Sentence and grammar study is incorporated into each read aloud.

The teacher does the reading work while the students do the thinking work. These lessons are grounded in research. It is said that the person doing the most talking is the person who is doing the most learning. SO these lessons scaffold instruction to get students talking. Side-by-side, students learn comprehension strategies such as Predicting, Visualizing, Retelling, Text Details, Connecting, Inferring, Character Analysis, Opinion Writing and so much more. You won’t believe how quickly students fall in love with your read-aloud time. 
Brain research reveals that reading comprehension starts with listening comprehension.  Since kindergarten, first grade students, and second grade students have listening skills that far surpass their ability to decode words, it is imperative that they participate in daily deep conversations surrounding books that allow them to strengthen their thinking! Don’t wait! Start building pathways to deeper thinking today!
These units can be used on their own or as a supplement to your current reading curriculum. They are simply the easiest and most enjoyable way to drive up student engagement. Join the thousands of teachers who have transformed their ELA block.

Tiffany S. (Kindergarten) says, “Thank you so much for this pack. I cannot believe how extensive it is!! I love the organization and how you have referenced the CCSS. I love that it is scaffolded and that the pack is designed to work with students on different levels. The activities are appealing to students, as well. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! This is a kindergarten reading teacher’s dream!! “
Mary C. (2nd grade) says, “This resource has sooo much stuff I don’t even know how to start telling you how amazing it is!!! It really is all right inside the files! It’s nice to not have to search for stuff or make stuff up myself to go with a story. This even has anchor charts and interactive notebook pages!! LOVE IT!!!!!”
Chris J. says, “I love these units so much! They are the best thing I have ever purchased on TPT. These weekly units are so easy to prep and plan for because everything is included and everything is AMAZING!! I used one of these lessons for my observation and my principal couldn’t believe the level that my students were able to infer and talk about the text. Thank you for making me look so good!!”
Joelle Gere says, “These lessons are amazing! This work prepares students for thinking as they listen/read. Students are learning thinking strategies and better preparing themselves for what is expected in grades 1 and up. I love the titles we have read so far. The student pages vary so I can use the easier sheets at the beginning of the year with my kinders who can only illustrate. By the end of the year we can transition to the assignments with lines and my students will be able to grow and show all their thinking and learning with pictures and words. I wish I had found this resource years ago!”
