Hi everyone! I am a first year 2nd grade teacher (teaching 1st grade at the same time as well ) and would like to do a read aloud of Roald Dahl's The BFG with the 2nd grade students. I'd like to know what you all recommend--do I read aloud and have some sort of activity after each chapter? Free writing? Comprehension? What kind of activities do I follow up with? At the end what could I do to tie it all together? Some background: Most students, with the exception of 3-4, read at a high level, and all except 1 have a very good level of oral comprehension. We are a bilingual school, so the students are fluent in French and English. I teach 40% of the classroom time in English. We follow Scott Foresman Reading Street (common core) but I'd like to bring more literature into the classroom. Thanks!
