Stellaluna Lesson Plan Ideas – Making Predictions

We start our read aloud lessons by making predictions!  The power of an interactive read aloud is in the dicussions that take place prior to writing!   We love asking students to also respond in writing (and in kindergarten, it often writing = drawing.)  We are 100% okay with this.  We know that before they can write words, they really need to do the thinking work first.

Stellaluna Lesson Plan Ideas – Retelling with Text Details

Retelling text details was so PAINFUL before I started providing students with picture cards to use when they retell.  We start by retelling the text details of Stellaluna as a collaborative activity.  

Once the graphic organizer (like the one shown below) is complete, then students turn to their partner and orally practice retelling the events in the story.  Talk about a great oral language learning moments.  Since we do this every week, students quickly catch on and then there is NO STOPPING them!

Students then create a personal retelling that they can use to practice retelling during center time or when they take it home to their families.

There is also a digital version of these activities in the DIGITAL set.  They have been preloaded to Seesaw.  This was helpful during distance learning, but it also makes a great independent learning task.   If you use Seesaw, you could ask students to record themselves retelling the stories!   Assessment… complete!

We always teach an interactive read aloud with an acutal book.  But, it is nice to have different models of fluency.  We love StoryTime as Awnie’s House!

Students can watch and rewatch Stellaluna as often as they wish.
