How to Use Lesson Plans

I’ve designed Texas Librarian to support elementary school (Pre K-5) librarians, teachers, and parents in planning read alouds that support higher level thinking strategies.

For each grade level and each month, Texas Librarian provides a unique list of age-appropriate books and strategies that will help children develop connections and increase comprehension while learning to think when they are reading.

The provided lesson plans list books for each month starting with the month of September and continuing through May with no overlaps. These plans should allow instructors to read different books to each grade level over the years without worrying that the book was read to students in a previous grade.

From second grade on up, I also have a book talk section after the May titles.
