About Let's Gather, Grades K-2
Let’s Gather provides grade-level specific read-aloud plans highlighting thoughtfully
curated fiction and nonfiction texts that will not only captivate your students’ attention, but also lend themselves to supporting a progression of high-level
comprehension skills across the year. These plans call attention to words that are not only critical to the text and topic, but also to the academic conversations
you’ll foster. There are plans for first reads and rereads of the read-aloud texts, helping you and your students grow a repertoire of reasons to reread, perhaps each
time with a different lens. Finally, these plans include regular opportunities for partner talk and whole-class conversations, helping teachers learn ways to support
students in having collaborative, text-based discussions.
Let’s Gather also includes several templates for shared-reading sessions that teachers can use and adapt across multiple texts. The shared-reading lesson plans in Let’s Gather provide opportunities for the whole class to read a text aloud together and are especially useful for teaching and reinforcing phonological awareness, concepts about print, word-solving strategies, and fluency.
