The Relatives Came Read Aloud

The Relatives Came by Cynthia Rylant is such a great book to read either before Thanksgiving or after.  I love the illustrations in this book!

With our Engaging Readers units, we work on reading comprehension skills and responding to literature.

While I was working with a school in Georgia, I snapped a few pictures.  The students in Mrs. Morris’s class were making connections with the text.  She added the sentence study to the page as well!

I love how Mrs. Carpenter’s class combined the retelling with the craft from the unit.  Look at the license plate!  HA!  Love it!

You can also use the printable retell cards to do a whole-group lesson.

Another option for retelling the story is to use our new digital retell! It’s less prep work for you!

An additional activity using this book is to make connections with the story. We talk about what a relative is and students tell about a time they had a visit with a relative. They love writing and drawing on Post-it notes.

At the end of the week, students write about their favorite part of the story.

The Relatives Came Read Aloud: Video

Although we always recommend using a hard copy of the book, it is okay to watch a read-aloud video a time or two, especially as a review before a retell.  You can listen to the book in this recording!

    I wanted the free resource for The Relatives Came but I only received a bump game.
