      • Ten-Step Read-Aloud Planning Sequence

        1. Select a book that is age appropriate. (small group readers are great for this)
        2. Discuss the book title and the book cover; stimulate thinking about story possibilities- who? what? why? where? when?
        3. Make some story predictions.
        4. During the reading, share pictures and illustrations.
        5. Read with enthusiasm- bring the story "to life."
        6. After reading, discuss predictions and what actually happened. (Pieronek, 2001)
